Being global: Making the case for international alumni relations

Dobson, G. Being global: Making the case for international alumni relations. Washington DC, CASE, 2011. ISBN: 0-89964-433-3. Pages: 146.

The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) presented in October its new publication on the engagement of international alumni. Developing its argument around a simple equation, whereby graduates plus opportunities can equal positive results if stewarded in strategic ways, this book includes a wealth of information about best practices being implemented by colleges, universities and business schools worldwide. So-called ‘management from a distance’, student-alumni programmes, programming with faculty and signature programmes are amongst key subjects explored. Featuring numerous resources for readers on the various topics, this publication can be helpful for educational institutions pondering whether to implement an international alumni programme or for those wishing to improve their existing programmes.
