College Relations

Alumni & Parent Engagement

Alumni & Parent Engagement facilitates the relationship between the college and its alumni, parents, students and friends through programming, volunteer opportunities, communications and works closely with departments across campus. Our goal is to increase alumni and parent engagement through events and outreach for the purpose of raising awareness and pride in Union College and to increase involvement as volunteers, ambassadors, student recruiters and as donors. We are responsible for annual events that engage Union alumni, parents and friends with the campus community, including ReUnion, Homecoming and Family Weekend, and various leadership donor events.
