Centennial Reunion Weekend Events
The College of Education, Health and Human Sciences celebrated the University's Centennial
Anniversary during the Alumni Association's Centennial Reunion Weekend with a Department
of Leadership Open House, panel discussions featuring current students and alumni,
and a leadership symposium featuring David Williams, President and CEO of Leadership
The Education Alumni Chapter conducted a Focus Group Event in August of 2011 to determine
how the Chapter could best meet the needs of its constituents in order to create a
viable and sustainable group. Over 20 alumni attended to discuss the successes and
challenges of the Chapter and to begin to formulate a plan for its future growth.
The event was followed up by a survey, which had over 200 participants. We look forward
to putting this wealth of information to use as we grow the Chapter.
