Dear Alumni and Friends,
Continuing to strengthen the Department's outreach is one of our most exciting priorities. It is one that stresses alumni engagement and better connects current students with the tremendous resources of alumni talent and experience.
Increasing our outreach isn't only beneficial for current students. There is real value for alumni as well. As a graduate of the Department of African American & African Studies,you can attest to the tight bonds that exist between you, faculty, staff and fellow graduates. We are a community defined by its members' commitments to leadership, excellence, and innovation.
Our alumni network is an important resource for students and graduates in virtually every industry and field. As alumni, it is our responsibility to keep the community strong--for ourselves, and for future generations of African American & African Studies majors and minors. I encourage you to connect with theDepartment and with fellow alumni. Explore the offerings of our outreach initiatives, connect with students, or return to campus to share the work you are doing.
I look forward to keeping you informed of the Department. I welcome your questions, input and most importantly, your involvement.
