Membership for the Alumni
MU-Almuni work with a wide range of partners to assist the advancement and internationalization of Mekelle University, its students and staff. The role of the MU-Almuni Relation Office is to help forge and strengthen links between both the academic and student communities at the University with former students, philanthropic win-win partners and those who wish to help the University to maximize the societal benefit of its teaching, research, and community service. The Office combines support for the development of the University's interaction with its alumni with administrative assistance for the works in the University-Industry and Internationalization initiatives. It also co-ordinates and assists the academic community in planning approaches for philanthropic support of academic objectives.
The Alumni Relations Office is here to help graduates stay in touch with their former classmates, to find lost friends, to help them affinity groups and to maintain their contact with Mekelle University from wherever they are in the world. The Development and Alumni Relations team works to build lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with alumni and friends of MU, whether they are former students of Mekelle University. The MU’s Alumni Relations Office is ready to assist those interested affinity groups who would like to stay in touch with the University and each other and to keep them informed of the latest news, events and alumni or affinity reunions.
Once graduates leave MU, the MU’s Alumni Relations Office don’t want to lose touch with them. The Office let us know when they move home, work or change their email address by completing our update form (See annex I). The Office then makes sure that MU’s graduates are up to date with all the latest advancements and activities at the University.
