Dear University Community,

It is with great enthusiasm that I step into the role of president of the UNI Alumni Association, entrusted with the responsibility of fostering and strengthening the bond that ties us all together. As an alum of UNI, I am filled with a deep sense of gratitude and pride for the campus experiences that shaped both my personal and professional growth.

Alumni play a pivotal role in the life of any university. Beyond the years spent on campus, our connection endures, serving as a bridge between the past, present and future. I am eager to collaborate with fellow alumni, faculty and students to build bridges that facilitate mentorship, career development and philanthropy. Together, we can create an environment where the achievements of one reflect the collective success of all.

In the coming months, I look forward to engaging with many of you, listening to your stories and understanding the unique ways in which UNI has shaped your lives. We can create a legacy that extends far beyond our time on campus. Whether it’s professional collaborations, philanthropic activities or simply sharing our experiences, each interaction among our alumni community is valuable.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as your alumni president and excited about the journey ahead to collectively shape the future of UNI.

Ever Loyal,
