In 2017, an alumni visioning committee gathered to consider the past, present, and future of the Sun Devil alumni experience. The committee identified three key priorities: Alumni Lifelong Learning, Alumni Back on Campus, and Alumni Supporting Current Students. In response to those requests, the Kent Denver Alumni Office and Alumni Board have a slate of events and volunteer opportunities planned on campus and throughout the Denver area. We also have Regional Events in the works to connect with alumni around the country. Additional event details are below and will be shared by email in the monthly Alumni Connection e-newsletter!
