Strategy

With the newly adopted five-year strategic plan in hand, 2016-17’s MAA Board focused on some key goals within the plan. Learning more about the career services, mentoring and networking opportunities available for both students and recent graduates, the Board identified gaps in service and developed new approaches to address this need and best support students and alumni in achieving their career aspirations.

Customizing communications to best deliver content of interest and relevance to the diverse alumni population is a focus. With the introduction of Bambu, alumni can select content that’s of most interest to them and allows us to be responsive to their preferences. Increasing the opportunities to engage with us digitally – through videotaped lectures, Question of the Week, online mentoring and networking platforms, in addition to traditional event based programming responds to the needs of an increasingly online, and younger, alumni base. We’ve also worked to increase the opportunities for students to connect with alumni and are encouraged to see that the benefits of these connections go both ways! Increasing the opportunities to recognize alumni achievements and profile our alumni is a continued focus of the current plan and will build on the expanded Impact award, the alumni profile program and increase nominations of external awards.
