Author Talk

Every international educator knows the value international students bring to campus, but few have tapped their institution’s international alumni to their full potential. In Engaging International Alumni as Strategic Partners, experts on international alumni relations describe how higher education institutions can develop international alumni networks—and keep alumni connected to their alma mater by nurturing two-way relationships. Chapters and case studies from institutions and organizations around the world cover how international alumni can contribute to international student recruitment, philanthropic efforts, professional development, community engagement initiatives, and more.

In this event, the co-authors will discuss their perspectives on this compelling topic and share highlights from the book.
