Alumni Associations Network
The IARU Alumni Associations Network connects the IARU alumni directors. Alumni associations are key to the long-term growth of the IARU institutions. In addition to the exchange of experiences and best practices, the delegates discuss at their summits several new ideas for joint programs and activities.
The aims of this network are:
- to connect diverse practitioners in the field of alumni relations, exposing them to new ideas and uncovering shared opportunities; to enhance mutual cultural understanding
- to showcase best practice at each institution and discuss applications within each institution
- to explore issues that present challenges at each institution: staff retention and development; exciting and engaging global alumni networks and leveraging broad reaching institutional support to enhance alumni relations activities without increasing expenditure
- to connect like-minded alumni worldwide through a networking event hosted at the end of the summit and to discover ways of building meaningful relationships between alumni communities
