Alumni notes

From the President

Greetings CEHD Alumni:

As your new CEHD Alumni Society president, I am ready to help build and strengthen our beloved University of Minnesota. To that end, please help us take the next step by remaining involved in the life of the University. We can have an immediate impact upon the success of our alma mater, its current students and our alumni community in small and large ways. Our CEHD Alumni Society has more than 8,000 members and is the second largest alumni society at the University.

The board, in conjunction with Director of Alumni Relations, hosts numerous events, programs and volunteer opportunities both. I would like to encourage all my fellow alumni to: Stay connected!

Facebook: If you are not a part of our U of M Alumni Association Social Network Facebook page, join us! This is a great opportunity for you to learn about upcoming events, keep in touch with old classmates, post updates on news in your world, and more.

Update your profile: A network is only as strong as those who participate in it! If your information is not updated, your former classmates cannot connect with you. Update your profile now!

We thank you for your ongoing support and contributions to our college and the University. As one of more than 75,000 proud CEHD alumni, I look forward to serving you. The Alumni Society Board welcomes your comments, questions, and feedback. Please email me at or connect with us through LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

The Office of Alumni Relations and the Alumni Association Board of Directors welcomes your involvement and participation!


Chris Dixon, CEHD Alumni Society President
