How did this idea come about?

Through a digital survey, phone interviews, and in-person focus group with leadership in alumni affairs and advancement across the nation, this idea was born.

The participants in these conversations continued to stress the need for ongoing research and information-sharing on how to best serve and reach alumni. So we wondered — what would this research-driven, idea-sharing platform look like?

We envision a vibrant online community of institutions sharing information, pooling resources, and accessing premium, evidence-based content, all facilitated by ALUMinate.
