Episode 17: Transforming Our Approach to Alumni Relations

Today on the podcast I am joined by my colleague and friend, Donna Thornton.  Donna is the Vice President for Alumni Relations at Rutgers University and a member of CASE's Summer Institute in Alumni Relations (SIAR) faculty.  In 2006, Rutgers University President Richard L. McCormick initiated a process to study alumni relations at his institution with the creation of the Task Force on Alumni Relations.  The result... sweeping changes in the strategy, structure, funding and service delivery.  Today we discuss the transformation of Rutgers approach to alumni relations as well as her role at SIAR.
