The alumni of a university significantly affect its present vitality and future strength. As part of the university's overall advancement effort, the alumni relations program is critical. It needs to be administered by professional educators, committed to both the institution and the profession. It also needs the support of alumni volunteers who, together with the staff, help the institution achieve its goals and maintain positive relations with the alumni population. The University of New Mexico Alumni Relations Office has two complementary missions: one, to provide a means for the University to communicate with and serve alumni, and two, to provide a means for alumni to communicate with and serve the University. The underlying intent of this partnership is to insure the University of New Mexico's continued excellence. To implement these goals, the UNM Alumni Relations Office, in concert with the UNM Alumni Association, has developed a comprehensive alumni program. The following report describes the highlights of the alumni program over the past two academic years.
