New role for young alumni

To help engage young alumni — and serve their unique needs and interests — the Miner Alumni Association formed the New Alumni Council (NAC) in April 2014. NAC sponsors programs and events to encourage young alumni and current students to connect and get involved with the alumni association.

“I wanted to stay involved with the school as much as I could after moving over 2,000 miles away from Rolla,” says co-chair Maggie Bowman CE’13, a production support engineer with the Boeing Co. in Redmond, Wash. “Being involved with young professionals with the same mindset of giving back to the university with our time and ideas was something that I could really benefit from.”

“It’s imperative that we create opportunities for young alumni to grow their connections while their student network still exists,” Jackson says. “It’s much more difficult to re-engage someone who’s been out of the loop for years without any remaining connections.”
