Working Group Charge: Alumni Engagement and Development

Swarthmore alumni express deep appreciation for the education they received and pride in the rigor, depth and richness of their educational experience. Many are eager to be engaged with the school, both in support of future generations of students and also to continue, in new ways, the deep learning experiences they enjoyed as students themselves. The Alumni Engagement and Development Working Group will consider how best to nurture such engagement. We will also examine strategies to better understand our community’s philanthropic perspectives, habits, and preferences and review best practices for fundraising initiatives. We will consider new possibilities for fostering the College’s relationship with Swarthmore alumni and parents as community members and as donors.
