Posted by Amanda Kelly on Friday, June 3, 2011 at 8:09 AM PDT
Dear Alumni and Friends –
I am filled with great pride to be back at Seattle University! I have just finished my first week as the new Associate VP of Alumni Relations. Seattle University plays an important role in my life and I am extremely excited to be back at SU, bringing tremendous passion and enthusiasm for the university and for the role that Alumni Relations plays in the future of SU. I can’t think of anything better than representing my alma mater and the 60,000+ alumni of Seattle University!
As I drive into work every day I find myself smiling as I realize that I get to go to a place that I take great pride in and know that I have the privilege to be in my dream job of working across our university, our community and with our alumni. My role will be a connector, bringing the great resources our alumni, faculty and university has together that will bring awareness to the great opportunities SU has to offer.
While I have only had one week in the job, I do know that Alumni Relations wants to be a resource for our alumni efforts by providing awareness of opportunities and empowering alumni to build a strong network. There are great alumni doing great things every day, around the world. We want to provide an on-going cadre of leadership from alumni and friends of the University that will involve our alumni in meaningful ways with Seattle University.
Seattle University has been a tremendous personal and professional resource to me. My goal is to ensure that others have that opportunity through our alumni network to utilize all that Seattle University has to offer.
I look forward to our work together on behalf of our students, our alumni and our community.
Susan, ’90, ‘10
