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. 

Sincerely,  

Susan, ’90, ‘10
