Ways to Help

Alumni Partner Initiative

Alumni Partners Program

As an Alumni Partner, your contact information will be available on our website. Students, Alumni, and faculty/staff can reach out for 1:1 conversations, presentation invitations, and other engagements. There is not a guarantee that you will be contacted or engaged during an academic year, but you will be considered first for student connections, presentations, networking events, and other contributions (in person or virtually). Through this program, you will contribute to the success of our students and Alumni, and you will remain closely connected with OWU. We hope you'll consider joining us in this new initiative to strategically connect our students and Alumni! 

Please contact Leigh Mascolino at lemascolin@owu.edu with questions.
