Director of Alumni Affairs

It is hard for me to believe that it has been eight years since I began my position as alumni director. The years have seemingly flown by.

My first four years were spent growing and restructuring the Alumni Association Board of Directors, rebuilding alumni weekend, implementing regional events, and developing several key programs that take place in San Diego.  

However, four years ago I was asked to also lead the Department of Development. While directing both development and alumni relations over the past four years I had to dedicate the majority of my time to fundraising efforts.   

Now, in an effort to rebuild and strengthen our alumni program-strengthening our relationship with you-the office of Alumni Affairs will soon implement new avenues of involvement, service, and engagement. 

It is with great excitement that I share with you a new shift in Alumni Affairs programming!

Over the next few years you will see to a variety of new programs, events, and services.  Several of these events and programs are featured throughout this magazine.  It is my hope that you find these programs interesting. I hope that they inspire you!    

It is an honor and a privilege to be your Director of Alumni Affairs. I very much look forward to what the next eight years will bring!

Warm Regards,

Lori K.Boyle
