wo years ago, our alumni and foundation boards decided to merge into one, unified powerful organization with a shared mission, vision and strengthened focus on engaging our alumni through generosity of time and resources to advance the university. Lifelong relationships, career opportunities and memories from UCM compel our alumni to care deeply about their alma mater. We aspire to provide meaningful ways for our alumni to engage with their university, impacting the students and campus while continuing to grow our reputation across the world. Jason Drummond,
