What is the Alumni Relations Council?
The Alumni Relations Council is a forum for professionals that engage alumni to share expertise, explore mutually beneficial partnerships, and strengthen our ability to connect alumni with each other and the university. ARC members represent 30+ schools/colleges/units and U-M’s three campuses, with expertise in a diverse set of functional areas, including alumni relations/engagement, fundraising/development, marketing, student programs, and career programs. However, we all are unified in a desire to engage more alumni in more relevant ways that strengthen and support the University of Michigan.
U-M staff can join by contacting Ayanna McConnell (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be added to the email list and to receive notification of upcoming Alumni Relations Council sessions. ARC sessions are held quarterly to focus on emerging practices and innovations in alumni engagement.
