Alumni Association 2020 Survey Results
Thanks to your input, we’ve taken the following actions:
  • Launched our inaugural Career Week, Jan. 25-29, 2021. Over 1,800 Terps joined for 21 events designed to help alumni gain new skills, network with Terps in their industry and connect with career-boosting resources at the Alumni Association. Check out our Career Week YouTube Playlist for recordings from each day. 
  • Increased our investment in Terrapins Connect, the online networking, mentoring and job search platform exclusive for the Terp community. Create your account and start making purposeful connections for career advice, job opportunities and networking. There are thousands of fellow Terps waiting to connect with you.
  • Accelerated programming for the inaugural Black Alumni Weekend (coming spring 2022) with a series of preview events slated for Black History Month 2021, including a kickoff event that uncovers the past and present events that defined Black experiences at the University of Maryland. 
  • Expanded on the content in the Alumni Blog. Read inspiring stories, professional advice and exciting updates from your fellow fearless alumni. You may even find a story that reminds you of the great times you spent on campus, and the honored traditions that keep you connected.
  • Amplified our alumni-owned businesses through the #TerpBusiness initiative to encourage Terps to do business with other Terps. From restaurants and breweries, to CPAs and Law firms, and everything in between, we encourage alumni to think of Terps first. We've also doubled down our efforts to hire alumni-owned businesses for Association event and programming needs.
Stay tuned for even more content, as your alumni team is hard at work analyzing the survey data so that we can continue to offer you the programs and experiences you want, to help you advance both personally and professionally.
