Alumni & Career Engagement

Alumni & Career Engagement is a subdivision of The Haven's Office of Alumni & Professional Engagement. Our staff engages alumni and supporters of the university through an array of on-campus, regional and digital outreach.

Our mission is twofold — to identify academic and professional partnerships students need to succeed in a 21st century global workforce, along with financial resources from donors and corporate partners that enhance learning outcomes for all students.
