Alumni Campus Visits and Communication

Alumni campus visits

Would you like to bring alumni back to campus to speak to a class? Catch up on their current career and professional success? Attend an event?  Let us know in advance. We can provide you with alumni swag, information about the UMBC Alumni Association, and more. We encourage you to share information about any alumni visits at

Communicating with alumni

The Alumni Engagement office regularly communicates with UMBC alumni, primarily through electronic means. We are happy to provide guidance on how you might develop your own communications plan.

  • When you collaborate with our office on an event, we can support your outreach efforts through our social media channels, website, or email marketing efforts such as our monthly e-newsletter.
  • If your office already produces a newsletter sent to alumni, please add us to the distribution list at
  • If you have social media pages, please add the UMBC Alumni Association to your list. We are on Facebook, LinkedIn at UMBC Alumni Network, and Flickr.
  • Please include graduation years and majors for alumni on departmental websites and other communications. Also, if any members of your department or colleagues are alumni, we encourage them to include their graduation year in their email signature line and on business cards. For information about how to reference alumni, listing of graduation years and majors, publications, and more, please visit the UMBC Style Guide at
