Introduction

CHRIST (Deemed to be University) ever since its inception has been nurturing and fostering the association of its Alumni namely Christ University Alumni Association (CUAA). The Association functioning hitherto as a wing of the University has now been formally registered as a Trust under the Indian Trust Act as an empowered independent body. This has necessitated the establishment of a dedicated office of the University to facilitate essential oversight of the association activities for its legitimacy and to ensure timely communication/directions as may be necessary from the perspective of the University. The University has therefore established an Office of Alumni Engagement (OAE) with effect from April 2021 headed by the Pro-Vice Chancellor.

 

Objectives of the Centre

  • Keep a roster of our alumni/ae and their pertinent database, and develop a standardized organisational structure and coordination of all the alumni chapters and bequests towards the welfare of the university, subject to the approval of the University.
  • Let the alumni/ae acknowledge their gratitude to their Alma Mater, promote a sustained sense of belonging, interest, and loyalty
  • Provide a forum for alumni/ae to exchange ideas on academic, cultural, and social issues of the day by organising and coordinating the reunion and such other engagements with the alumni
  • Effectively employ the talents, energies, and contributions of the alumni/ae to constructive ends for the university and with the office of alumni engagement
  • Create a system to seek the support of alumni/ae for curricular and extracurricular activities, internships, placements, and corporate relations
  • Disseminate information and establish regular communication with the alumni/ae through quarterly newsletters and other communications to create alumni/ae synergy with the University
  • Any other activity to promote better alumni engagement and progress of the university by making creative contributions in the form of gifts, device
