The Office of Alumni and Constituency Engagement—otherwise known as ACE—works to engage our constituents (defined as alumni, donors, parents and Fox Valley community members) in the mission of the college.  We plan reunion (as well as over 60 other events every year), work with the Lawrence University Alumni Association Board of Directors and communicate regularly with the 18,000 alumni spread around the world.  We also serve as connectors between our constituents and a variety of other Lawrence University departments, including athletics, admissions and career services.  Our constituents care deeply about Lawrence and want to give back through financial contributions, volunteerism and supporting the college and our students in advisory and networking roles.  It’s our job to help inspire our constituents to become involved, develop meaningful engagement opportunities and make those connections.

With a successful More Light! Finale Celebration in the rearview mirror, the ACE team is gearing up for busy winter and spring months where we will welcome dozens of alumni home for Lawrence Scholars summits, focused This is Lawrence engagement weekends, and, of course, reunion!  We will also be traveling around the country to such places as New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Minneapolis, thanking the college’s most generous donors, connect alumni in those regions and bringing news from campus.
