A message from Alumni Board President Brian Murphy
I am excited and honored to introduce myself as your new Alumni Board President. I hope to leverage the positive momentum generated by outgoing president, Greg Horter ’89. Please join me in thanking him for his contributions and ongoing commitment to the University.
In June, we welcomed a tremendous class of new directors to the Alumni Board. The incoming group brings a diverse mix of backgrounds and talent, and their contributions have proven immediately beneficial.
As October’s Homecoming and Parents´ Weekend approaches, it is natural to reflect on the memories, opportunities and friendships created during our time at the University, and also to have questions. What is the current state of the University? What has Redlands been up to since I graduated? How can I connect with fellow alumni and learn about upcoming events and recent University accomplishments?
The Alumni Board continues to tackle initiatives that we believe will allow Redlands’ alumni from across the globe to more meaningfully connect with, serve and give to the University. Key goals for this year include:
- Continued development of the successful regional alumni chapter program.
- Collaboration with Alumni Relations to optimize the reunion experience.
- Development of a taskforce to increase opportunities for engagement for School of Business and School of Education alumni, particularly those from the University’s regional campuses.
- Ongoing support and communication for key alumni events and initiatives such as Bulldogs in Service, Homecoming and Parents´, Alumni Reunion Weekend, Alumni Travel Experiences and more.
I encourage all of you to find time this year to learn about the incredible things happening at Redlands and to reconnect with the University and your fellow alumni. I assure you it will be a rewarding experience.
