Welcome, Poet Alumni!
YOU BELONG. Alumni are essential members of the Whittier College Poet family – they are lifelong stakeholders in the institution, and their passion and loyalty to their alma mater inspire devotion that is second to none.
CONNECT WITH US.The Office of Alumni Relations works to build and sustain a lasting network of active, dedicated and informed Whittier College alumni – to recruit and manage a strong volunteer and leadership base, as well as related regional chapter programs. Its purpose is to serve as the primary resource for Poet Alumni for communication with the College, with current students, and among peer-to-peer affinity alumni networks.
GET INVOLVED. Key to achieving this purpose, the Office strives to identify, establish, and promote opportunities in which alumni can actively contribute to the mission of the College via contributions of time, expertise, money, professional or academic opportunities, and other channels of support. Throughout the year, Office staff actively collaborate with the Alumni Association Board of Directors to set and achieve various goals on behalf of the alumni body and institution as a whole.
Hope to hear from you soon--GO POETS!!
