Message from the Alumni Society President

Jenna Mitchler, CEHD Alumni Society President

Dear Fellow Alumni,

Connecting with others can be such a source of joy. Because of that, I’m grateful to all those who joined us for our much-anticipated homecoming events at the end of September. Hundreds of CEHD faculty and staff, alumni, and their families took part, including walking in the homecoming parade on a beautiful Friday evening. Events like these are such a celebration of community.

>And we are a remarkable community. CEHD is one of the largest colleges at the University of Minnesota, with over 75,000 graduates. Every year, we recognize several of them for their accomplishments and outstanding contributions. Please consider nominating someone you know for one of these awards at

I’d also like to invite you to join us and connect with the community at an upcoming event.Our calendar is brimming with exciting opportunities to meet fellow CEHD alumni, share your experiences, and learn from others, and you can find them listed at Let’s continue to foster a sense of community and belonging.

Wishing you joy,
