Mission statement: To build the nation's largest network of engaged young alumni
The Iowa State University Alumni Association’s Young Alumni Council, made up of graduates of the past 10 years, was founded in 2007. Over the past several years, the Iowa State University Alumni Association (ISUAA) has placed an increased emphasis on creating and sustaining meaningful connections with Iowa State’s “young alumni." Targeted event planning, membership drives, marketing campaigns, and various communications are being directed toward this growing demographic.
Today, young alumni make up 23.7 percent of the overall alumni body and 7.5 percent of the ISU Alumni Association's membership. The importance of accepting, encouraging, and developing the talents and resources of this young alumni demographic will be key to continued success in promoting Iowa State University and connecting Iowa State alumni with one another.
Focusing our outreach to this group requires more involved and creative techniques, a more diverse message, and engaged leadership that understands the attitudes of the young alumni segment. With the Young Alumni Council's assistance and involvement we are able to better reach out to this segment of our alumni population and create meaningful experiences to keep them connected and engaged with Iowa State University, the ISUAA, and each other.
The Young Alumni Council also constantly reviews the ISUAA’s current programming and proposes ideas for reaching our “recent graduate” and “young alumni” demographics. Take a moment to meet the council by clicking on the link below.
The Iowa State University Alumni Association is an independent 501(c)3, self-governing organization charged with the mission of engaging the talents and resources of alumni, students, and friends in the life, work, and aspiration of Iowa State University. Our vision is to become the lifetime partner in engaging all alumni, students, and friends with Iowa State University.
