Traveling for work this semester?  Interested in spending an evening with fascinating people?  If so, please contact Leah Gowron, Director of Alumni Relations, or Jill Stoffers, Director of Admissions, regarding your travel schedule!  You can make a tremendous contribution to our recruiting and alumni affairs efforts with a very small invstment of your time.

The Alumni Office regularly coordinates alumni reception and happy hours in conjunction with faculty and staff travel.  Fred Wehling (Vienna), Ed Laurance (New York), Laura Burian (Beijing) and Lynn Goldstein (Portland & Seattle) helped host events over the summer, and  there are many more events planned for Fall 2008.  We are particularly interested in adding European cities, locales in the Middle East, and Korea to our Fall event schedule.

Hosting a reception is easy, and only takes two hours of your time.  All arrangements will be managed by the Alumni Office; your role is to “host”, communicate the many exciting changes and activities on campus to the attending alumni, and collect business cards/contact info. Occasionally supplemental travel support can be provided if scheduling a reception requires an additional night’s stay.

Current alumni events can be viewed here.

The recruiting staff can also use your help recruiting future classes for MIIS. There are several ways you can help:

  • • Meet with prospective students for drinks or coffee. With enough notice, we can set this up in your hotel.
  • • Take MIIS recruiting material to your contacts. Let us know and we’ll give you a small supply before you leave!
  • • Give a substantive presentation on a topic in your area of expertise or information session about MIIS. In some cities, we have concentrations of students who would love to learn more from you.

Depending upon the location, the Recruiting Office may be able to help with some of your expenses. Please notify contact Jill Stoffers or work directly with an Enrollment Manger. Thanks for thinking of ways to help!
