2 A productive Alumni program is crucial to the long-term success of the University s development program and to the larger University effort. It is imperative to link the mission statement California Baptist University Alumni Association fosters and cultivates a common bond of pride, affinity and connectivity among alumni, students, prospective students and friends of CBU through quality programs, services and events to the programmatic initiatives. The CBU Alumni Association should keep the alumni informed about the campus and about each other, provide ways for alumni to have meaningful interactions with the campus and with each other, and provide a home away from home. The CBU Alumni Association should also recognize the accomplishments of alumni and provide benefits, services, and programs that are of interest to alumni. The role of the Alumni Relations Department is to keep alumni connected to campus via electronic and printed communication, chapter and regional activities, mentoring, outreach to new students, and social activities. The CBU Alumni Association needs to be the lifelong connection to the alumnus/a. California Baptist University wants to maintain strong connections with its graduates. In order to accomplish this, the Alumni Relations Department and the CBU Alumni Association must work together with the University to develop effective programs for the alumni. Alumni activities should be promoted throughout the University and the community. The current pool of approximately 12,000 alumni must be personally and individually engaged to increase involvement and support for California Baptist University and the Alumni Association. To be more successful in the coming years, the University will need to pay more attention to understanding and meeting the changing interests and needs of its alumni by providing professionally run programs across the country, which will attract alumni for greater involvement and support for the University. 1. The CBU Alumni reflect the significantly changing demographics of the University s students over the past 59 years. Incomplete data for the alumni is a serious challenge for the CBU Alumni Relations Department, which must be corrected quickly with the assistance of the Office of the Registrar. At present there are less than 10,000 accurate mailing addresses and less than 6,000 address for the pool of more than 12,000 living alumni. Systematic efforts to sample alumni opinion should be initiated. The Alumni Association, the Institutional Advancement Division and the Alumni Relations Department need a better understanding of alumni expectations from the University in an effort to gain greater alumni interest and support. Surveys targeted to different segments of the alumni may be advisable at this time rather than a general survey. Staff and volunteers should also sample alumni opinions and attitudes at every gathering and event. 2

3 Effort should be made to better understand attitudes toward the University held by current students and to correct, or address, problems that adversely affect student feelings about CBU. Current students and a broad cross section of alumni should also be enlisted to identify and assess activities and services of potential interest to all alumni. 2. The Alumni Relations staff consists of a Director of Alumni Relations and an alumni consultant. The budget for this office will support the salary and benefits for these staff members. The Alumni Association does not yet provide operating funds to fully support its activities. The staff is housed in the Yeager Center, Johnson Wing. An Alumni Relations Communications Plan must be developed. Regularly held, face-toface contact with a broad range of alumni outside of the Alumni Association Board must be maintained in order to assess the alumni s diverse and changing interests, monitor attitudes toward the University, test reactions to possible new activities, and take the University s message directly to alumni. The Alumni Relations Director and alumni volunteers must share responsibility for such contact. A coordinated effort with the Office of the Registrar and the development staff to add useful information and promising leads to the database should be made. In addition to mail, and website contact strategies should be included in a communication plan. The Alumni Relations Director should take a more active role in strengthening the Alumni Association, helping its members in considering new ways for operating, devising strategies and pilot projects which manage the risks inherent in change, and encouraging an entrepreneurial spirit. The Director should also work to strengthen ties between administration, deans, faculty, students and the alumni. Professional development for the staff, including participating in the various alumni programs sponsored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), Christian Alumni Professionals (CAPS) and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and actively exchanging of ideas with more successful alumni programs, will enhance the Alumni Relations staff members knowledge of the profession. The Alumni Relations infrastructure should be strengthened and the staff energies directed to activities and priorities agreed upon by the University and the Alumni Association. 3. Four priorities have been established in an effort to focus the Association s objectives and energies to best support the University. They are: (1) connecting and establishing strong relationships with students while they are on campus, (2) implementing an Alumni Association membership program, (3) increasing overall Alumni Association awareness and marketing efforts, and (4) building a larger, more involved volunteer base. The Alumni Association is committed to helping the University, developing a greater sense of communication and partnership with University leaders and developing a clearer understanding of how to work productively with University offices and other volunteer organizations. Greater involvement by the President, Vice President for Institutional 3

4 Advancement, Alumni Relations Director and other senior administrators on a regular basis will help to direct and reassure the association members that their efforts are appropriate and appreciated. Partnership and collaboration is the key to success where we create awareness, build relationships and generate support for CBU. The Alumni Association is currently involved in a wide range of activities including Homecoming, membership programs with several affinity partners, student-focused initiatives and chapter events. Some of these activities will be expanded. Other activities will be reviewed and determination will be made with regards to their effectiveness. The Alumni Association will be identifying new programs that offer attractive models for involving alumni, provide a valuable service, and can be duplicated in other areas. Opportunities to expand such programs should be explored by the Association. Funding and sufficient staff permitting, the Association, with assistance from staff and the University, should continue to experiment with other ways to attract alumni, including increased small regional receptions, speakers on campus, one-day alumni trips, and activities co-sponsored with special interest groups. Bumper stickers or other small mementos should be widely and freely distributed, and alumni should be actively encouraged to display them. An aggressive commitment should be made to find out what will work, then do it and build upon it, step by step, over the next three years. Consideration of the financial assumptions underlying the Alumni Association should determine the most appropriate strategy for promoting growth of the Alumni program. Appropriate ways to underwrite the cost of expanding alumni activities need to be developed. Communication with the alumni should be increased beyond the quarterly Roundtable magazine. Increased alumni involvement depends upon increased interest in what is happening at CBU, which in turn depends upon presenting appealing members. The magazine is a useful communication tool in keeping alumni engaged with the institution, however additional channels of communications-including regional small group meetings, individual meetings with key alumni, speakers, and special events on campus and various sites-should be developed quickly. The Association s plan to increase membership is an appropriate long-term goal, but membership and dues issues should not be allowed to restrain assertive and creative efforts to increase interest and involve alumni. Given the University s long-term goals, revenues are less important at this point than reviewing links between the University and as many alumni as possible. Considerations should include, but not be limited to: challenging alumni to find lost alumni; and placing pertinent community leaders, who are alumni, on executive or advisory boards. Efforts should be made to identify and understand potential special interest and diverse alumni groups, and establish creative and mutually beneficial ways to link them to the University and the Alumni Association with a sense of common alumni identity. 4

5 Assistance from the President, Vice President, Alumni Association Board members and Alumni Relations Director is necessary to achieve the established goals and objectives, but must also be offered collaboratively to address the Alumni Association s concerns about organizational independence and the need to strengthen current activities. Recommendations regarding the Alumni Program: 1. The mission and role of the Alumni Relations Department, the Alumni Association and variety of other alumni groups and activities will be more clearly defined and coordinated as a result of the implementation of the strategic plan. Quarterly meetings between the Alumni Association Board President, the University President, the Vice President for Institutional Advancement, and Alumni Director should be scheduled to provide guidance and direction. 2. The Strategic Plan developed by the Alumni Association should include focused priorities, objectives and operating plans. The proposed emphasis on activities to attract more alumni, strengthen the Alumni Association, and stabilize the financial base seems appropriate, with specific measurable objectives and plans of action over the next three years. 3. The Institutional Advancement Division and Alumni Relations Department, through the Vice President, will work closely with the Alumni Association to devise appropriate financial strategies and budget commitment to support expanded and refocused programs and activities to attract and involve much larger numbers of alumni. Increased membership, while important for the long term, is less important in the short term, compared to increased interest and participation by larger numbers of alumni. 4. The refined Alumni Association Strategic Plan should include a multi-year plan to strengthen the Alumni Relations infrastructure and staff with defined objectives and performance measures, and should be endorsed by the University President and Vice President for Institutional Advancement. Increased financial investment from the University in the program should be linked to implementation of the plan and to staff. 5. Continuing professional development and training in implementing the strategic plan for the Alumni Relations staff is necessary. 6. Communication with alumni should be systematically increased. The Roundtable will be sent to the entire database three times per year. New and expanded channels of communication are being developed as part of a conscious strategy for reaching and involving more alumni. Articles on interesting, successful alumni and profiles on today s students and faculty with their ambitions and backgrounds will build greater connections between students and alumni. 7. New ways to interest and attract alumni including small neighborhood or regional receptions; invitations to attractive, interesting events on campus; or one-day events or trips should be explored. 8. The Alumni Relations Department staff will be conducting extensive research on several variables such as websites, homecoming, travel programs, and chapters. Experience at other 5

6 institutions suggest that networking with other alumni; career planning and assistance; recruiting and mentoring; programs for parents of new students; and community service programs are appealing alumni activities, but these need to be tested and adapted to CBU s distinctive alumni. The Alumni Association should also determine which current activities and benefits might be discontinued, modified, or expanded. 9. The Alumni Association should establish a working group of current students and recent graduates to help the Association and the University better understand factors that adversely effect student attitudes toward the University once they become alumni. The group can also help identify affordable ways to increase campus spirit and build student and alumni pride. The University should include the appropriate person from Student Services and senior administrators in addressing and resolving any problems that may pose fundamental obstacles in building stronger alumni ties to CBU. 10. The Alumni Association should develop effective ways to involve a broad cross-section of current and future student leaders in the ongoing activities and plans of the Alumni Association, and should strongly support a Student Alumni Chapter. 11. Encouragement of the continuation of the close relationship and cooperation between the Alumni and the Admissions Office, the Career Services Center, and Intercollegiate Athletics is necessary. Alumni should stay actively involved in recruiting, mentoring, and placement programs for current and future students. A program to provide placement assistance to recent alumni is attractive, but affordable ways to provide continuing placement and career networking assistance to alumni also needs to be developed. 12. Exploration of ways to use special interest groups among the students and alumni such as parent group, ethnic groups, schools or majors, sports, affinity groups, etc. will help draw more alumni back into association with CBU. A Three to Five Year Plan to Strengthen the Alumni Program 1. During the first 6 months to a year, beginning in the summer of 2009, translate the recommendations made in this section of the Institutional Advancement Division Strategic Plan into specific actions with measurable objectives and begin implementing these actions with the assistance of the Vice President of Institutional Advancement, the Director of Alumni Relations and Alumni Association Board. This will involve: Working with the Alumni Association to upgrade its strategic plan to develop a set of mutually agreeable, measurable objectives and a year-to-year schedule for plan implementation with defined roles and responsibilities for the Alumni Association, the University, and others; Encouraging staff and volunteer training and participation in CASE, CAPS and other Alumni Relations conference and workshops; 6

7 Experimenting, carefully, with activities such as receptions featuring interesting speakers, small receptions prior to activities and special events on campus, or cosponsored events which might attract greater alumni interest and participation; Identifying measurable objectives for the four priorities that have been established, which are: a. Connecting and establishing strong relationships with students while they are on campus; b. Implementing an Alumni Association membership program; c. Increasing overall Alumni Association awareness and marketing efforts; and d. Building a larger, more involved volunteer base. 2. During the academic year: Evaluate progress made in implementing the plan, make any appropriate adjustments, and proceed with the plan to engage more alumni, strengthen the Alumni Association, enhance the partnership of the Alumni Association and the University, and stabilize the financial base of the alumni program through the use of membership and affinity programs; Increase communications through a wider variety of communication tools such as s, chat rooms and online newsletters; Begin systematic efforts to survey alumni attitudes and interests through formal surveys targeted to segments and samples of the alumni; Establish a working group drawn from current students and recent graduates to help identify and address factors which (a) adversely affect the attitudes toward the University of its alumni in residence, and (b) would foster greater campus spirit and identity, as well as increase student and alumni pride; Establish working groups to identify and evaluate the range of alumni activities, services, and benefits of potential interest to current alumni and students; and Continue to expand staff and volunteer direct contact with alumni to refine and expand activities based on the results of surveys and recommendations of the working groups. 3. During the academic year: Continue to evaluate progress in implementing the plan and make adjustments as necessary; Establish the financial and programmatic basis for a growing, self-sustaining alumni program which will mobilize large numbers of alumni for support of future alumni, institutional advancement, and fundraising activity; 7

8 Develop alumni activities which make effective use of the distinctive campus resources; and Begin planning for the next phase in the evolution and expansion of the University s alumni programs Timeline: Performance indications: Initiation of alumni public opinion polls and attitude surveys Initiation of student involvement in the Alumni Association through the Student Alumni Chapter. The Student Alumni Chapter (SAC) is the main vehicle by which the Alumni Association reaches the student population. SAC would be responsible for planning events and activities through their mission of promoting spirit, tradition and pride. Development of a communication plan Development of an operating plan/budget Increased staff and training Increased number of alumni involved in University and alumni activities Evaluate the benefits of a Membership Program as a revenue generating source of income 8
