Working With Alumni Engagement

The Alumni Network: Harness the Power

app State’s alumni network is 130,000 strong, and the Office of Alumni Engagement is here to help you reach this important audience.

Our staff collects and maintains the database of record for alumni and friends of the University. Frequent emails, phone calls and mailings are sent throughout the year in order to keep this database current. We take care of these day-to-day maintenance activities so that you can have access to an up-to-date, centralized source of alumni information.

We work with academic and administrative departments, programs, centers, institutes, schools and colleges to engage alumni in a timely and compelling way. Here are just several of the ways we can help with your alumni communications needs:

Our office can distribute your event invitations, major announcements, program updates and newsletters to segmented groups of alumni through the Raiser’s Edge system. In addition to targeted emails, we welcome information on upcoming campus events, which we promote to area alumni each Monday in an events listing. We also distribute a monthly e-newsletter highlighting news features and upcoming events that are of interest to our alumni.

Print Mailings
We can provide you with pre-addressed mailing labels for your alumni mailings or, if it is more convenient for you, we can send your mailing information directly to your printer’s secure FTP site.

Telephone Outreach
We can provide you with a call list for your targeted alumni groups. The list generally includes each individual’s ID number, name, graduation year, city/state and phone number(s).

MONTCLAIRconnect – The Online Community for Alumni

Event Announcements: We can create announcement pages for you for all events and activities that are of interest to alumni. We can also assist with managing registration activities for your events.

Affinity Web Pages: Through our online community, we can help you to create an affinity page that directly connects alumni with all the great things happening in your department, center or program.

Our Team

We look forward to working with you to increase alumni engagement in your school, college, department, or program! Please contact:
