Greetings from the College of Dentistry Alumni Association!
College of Dentistry alumni are actively engaged in the education, research, outreach and clinical goals of the COD. In addition, our alumni display a strong culture of philanthropy. Helping to make the COD Alumni Association successful is our all-inclusive membership base, meaning that upon graduation all COD alumni are welcomed to the CODAA with automatic membership.
Building upon the success that the CODAA has demonstrated in alumni engagement, the UNMC Alumni Association embarked on a New Era of Alumni Engagement in 2015 and now welcomes all UNMC alumni into the alumni association with automatic membership.
The New Era of Engagement, first initiated by the leadership of the UNMC Alumni Association Board of Directors, brings positive changes including a sharpened focus on alumni engagement. The goal of the New Era of Engagement is to increase the number of alumni actively engaged with UNMC, its colleges, and its students to provide exciting opportunities for our alumni, to make our university stronger and to make a real difference for UNMC’s next generation of proud health sciences students.
Engagement will come from alumni association work focused in the areas of: serving and engaging graduates, disseminating effective communications, forming meaningful connections between alumni and students, and facilitating opportunities for alumni to invest in their UNMC passions.
How the CODAA works with the UNMC Alumni Association:
- The president of the CODAA serves as a board member on the UNMC Alumni Association Board of Directors.
- The CODAA leadership participates in sharing alumni engagement strategies with alumni from other Engagement Councils and with the UNMCAA with the goal of gathering new programming ideas, strengthening communication, and building upon the already successful work of each College based council.
