Human Ecology Alumni Association
The value of the HEAA is rooted in the relationships alumni form with each other and with the College. In an environment where alumni support one another and support the priorities of the College, the value of the network increased for all. Membership in the association is free and automatically granted to all graduates of the College.
HUMAN ECOLOGY ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BOARD
The board is the representative body of the College’s alumni network. As ambassadors, they represent the interests of all Human Ecology alumni to the College. The board’s mission is to assist in maintaining the lifelong relationship between the College and its alumni members worldwide.
The Board's goal is to foster a mutually beneficial relationship among the College, its students and its worldwide alumni network by leveraging the rich talents and many resources of the greater alumni community by enhancing awareness of the College and fostering increased attention to the College’s strategic priorities.
Now that the HEAA is dues free, ALL Human Ecology alumni are members of the association. In that spirit, the Board has restructured and implemented important steps to establish a more engaging and meaningful relationship between the Board, alumni, and current students. Our plan is to focus on:
Engagement & Outreach
To promote Human Ecology alumni engagement with the College and with one another by working in tandem with the Alumni Affairs & Development Office (AA&D) to encourage event attendance at both HE and Cornell events, sponsor small gatherings for local HE alumni, cultivate local alumni, discover and engage new “involved” alumni and volunteers, and assist in the development and support of Regional Ambassadors.
To advance relationships between alumni, alumni and students, and alumni and the College for the purpose of utilizing the strong Human Ecology career network and providing industry expertise to enhance the student experience and alumni engagement. Initiatives will foster alumni connections back to the College resulting in HE alumni being increasingly aware of College activities and priorities, more inclined to give financial support, and receptive to participating with the College on a higher level of engagement.
To facilitate the College development process working in tandem with the Alumni Affairs & Development Office (AA&D) to help identify potential donors, cultivate potential donors and help to steward donors, including the nomination and promotion of the alumni awards. It is not intended that this team will solicit gifts, but any team member interested in doing so can coordinate with the AA&D Office.
