Newly recognized at the national level for their virtual engagement strategy, MBU’s Office of Alumni Engagement this month is featuring three opportunities for alumni to get involved in important and timely initiatives including retention efforts, alumni communications, and Reunion planning.
Last week, the MBU team competed for the title of Top Virtual Series of 2019–20 at the Council of Alumni Marketing and Membership Professionals virtual conference. Adrienne Teague, executive director of alumni engagement, presented about their content creation and goals of connecting graduates and providing them with digital resources for career development and lifelong learning.
“While MBU didn’t come away with the prize, we were one of five finalists that also included Texas A&M University, the University of Utah, the University of Central Florida, and Texas A&M, Corpus Christi,” said Teague. “To compete at the national level among these peers as the only small private college in the running and share the story of Mary Baldwin alumni through the lens of the innovative work happening here is really thrilling for us.”
Teague recognizes the vital role alumni presenters and participants have played in garnering this national nod, and the alumni engagement team is opening up even more opportunities for graduates to contribute to their alma mater looking forward to the coming academic year.
“When we called, alumni answered with enthusiasm,” Teague said. “We know there are many more alumni out there with a variety of skills and expertise that are just waiting for an opportunity to come on board and volunteer with MBU, too.”
