ODI Alumni Council
The Duquesne University mission, in short, is ‘To serve God by serving students." As an office, part of that objective includes, not simply providing quality services to current students, but maintaining relations and support beyond graduation. Duquesne University currently has over 88,000 alumni located throughout all fifty states and around the world. In understanding that all success is linked to strong connections, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion developed the new ODI Alumni Council.
This council's primary objective is to establish a unified network of Duquesne alumni, for the purpose of providing services and service opportunities for all to engage in - enhancing the experience of current students, exchanging information, increasing career opportunities, and simply having fun. The council - led by Jeff Mallory (ODI Director), Jason Dorsey (co-chair), Imani Stutely (co-chair), and others - has kicked off such efforts with two socials this past spring, and plan to move forward in there efforts with many more activities and events to come.
If you would like to learn more and/or be placed on our contact list, please contact Mr. Dorsey at email@example.com or Ms. Stutely at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Welcome from Co-Chair Jason Dorsey
One of the most valuable things an alumnus of any university can do is lift as they climb. This is especially true to an alumnus of Duquesne University where education for the mind, heart, and spirit is provided to students willing to embark on the tumultuous journey to earn a college degree. While the journey can be hard for some, the path inevitably leaves students with invaluable life lessons which can be utilized to impact the communities in which they reside after post-graduation.
The Duquesne University Office of Diversity and Inclusion - Alumni Council hopes to add to that journey minority students undertake on campus and after graduation by connecting them to a network of alumni with a shared experience. By fostering this relationship with current and future alumni, we give graduates of Duquesne University an opportunity to give the most priceless thing they can offer to a student- time.
The time an alumnus offers can also be invaluable to other alumni looking to tap into Duquesne's rich and vast alumni network. With that being said, the council encourages both recent and past graduates to attend future Office of Diversity and Inclusion Alumni Council events so that we can increase the community of alumni available to current students and past graduates. After all, the journey of an education for the mind, heart, and spirit need not stop after graduation.
