Alumni Relations manages relationships between UCCS and its 34,000 alumni and works to cultivate a strong bond between our graduates and their alma mater.
The Office of Alumni Relations is a division of University Advancement that exists to strengthen ties between UCCS and its over 30,000 alumni through management of the Alumni and Friends Association.
In the spirit of educational advancement, the Alumni and Friends Association strives to be the central link between the University and its alumni. The Alumni Association promotes and fosters a lasting and mutually beneficial relationship between alumni, the University, its students, and the community to support the mission, goals, and traditions of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
The Office of Alumni Relations coordinates campus-wide communication with graduates through an annual magazine, The Roar, and via monthly e-newsletters and invitations to special events. We also work with colleges and departments on campus to develop an alumni relations strategy and establish a consistent communication platform.
We also reach out to our graduates through a variety of social media networks including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest. In addition, we manage UCCS Alumni Link, an online community that allows our graduates to connect with another, share class notes, join discussion groups and register for special events.
The Office of Alumni Relations also hosts numerous alumni events each year, including networking receptions, faculty lectures and family events. A complete list of upcoming events is available on the Alumni and Friends Association website.
