A Year of New Heights
A message from the president of the Friedman School Alumni Association
For the three career panels we hosted this year, we were able to engage 13 alumni as panelists or moderators. In addition, our increasingly popular DC Alumni/Student Networking trip saw 26 alumni participants—including eight new ones—as well as 20 student participants. This event is a great example of alumni and students partnering to strengthen our profession.
This dedication was also on display in April, when we hosted our annual All-Alumni Reunion. We welcomed nearly 100 alumni, students and guests back to the Friedman School across four different events, including the inaugural Friedman School Fun Run.
I would also like to highlight the continued success of our Mentoring Program, which this past year matched 12 students with alumni mentors, again exemplifying the collaborative relationship among Friedman alumni, students and faculty
Finally, my thanks to the Executive Council, who, as part of their efforts to revitalize and reorganize the Alumni Association, worked this year to develop revised mission and vision statements for the group that will help guide us forward.
Stay tuned in 2016–17 for initiatives aimed at further supporting career development, outreach and engagement of alumni, including more web-based events and programs and opportunities for alumni around the country to share their expertise with their fellow alumni and students.
