You may have noticed that the UNT Alumni Association expanded its programming and networking opportunities in the past year.
Those efforts recently earned the organization a programming award from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.
From helping showcase UNT at various events to offering career-building opportunities, the alumni association has created new ways to connect the greater UNT family. Resources offered include networking, job search strategies and opportunities just to get to know other alumni.
“During the past year, our UNT Alumni Association has transformed into an energetic, robust alumni relations program with a vision for a remarkable future,” says executive director Derrick P. Morgan, who joined the association in August 2007 and immediately set out to rebuild the staff. “It will only get even better as more alumni join our ranks.”
Here are some of the new ways the association recently has connected more than 10,000 alumni:
- UNT InCircle — This social network, which launched in spring 2008, provides online tools to find classmates, identify alumni with similar hobbies and establish business contacts.
- Linkedin.com — This online group provides professional networking opportunities.
- Facebook UNT Alumni Association Group — This social networking group offers ways to reconnect and stay in touch.
- Twitter — Alumni can follow the association’s latest news.
The association also launched a new web site — www.untalumni.com — last year.
