Three Brite Ideas Alumni Engagement

In every episode, we ask our guest to share three brite ideas to sum up the conversation. 

Here are Kevin’s three brite ideas on alumni engagement:

1. Survey your alumni as much as you can. The last couple of years have changed a lot of things in the alumni space. You should ask your alumni what they want.

2. Develop ways to justify continued investment in alumni relations. Shift alumni relations from a cost mindset to an investment mindset to increase interest among alums.

3. Create an explicit strategy that allows you to focus. Your strategy should determine what initiatives you should pursue and what you should not.
