The Alumni Association of Hodges University was founded in 1992. The mission of the Alumni Association is to support Hodges University, and to maintain the network of professional and social connections established as students in pursuit of lifelong learning.
All graduates of Hodges University are considered members of the association, and there are no membership fees or dues.
Mr. Joe Turner serves as the Director of Public Relations and Alumni Affairs. Dr. Marcia Turner, Dean of Students, is the University's Administrative Advisor and contact person for the Alumni Association. The office is supported by the executive leaders and committees of the Alumni Association, and Wendy Gehring serves as the HUAA President.
The strength of the Alumni Association is dependent on communication and networking. Hodges currently maintains current events on our Alumni site, the main website, our Facebook page and our Twitter page.
IMPORTANT: Alumni Affairs has launched its social network that is accessible at alumni.hodges.edu. Alumni are able to register and create a personal profile. The network interfaces with other social media such as Facebook, and this communication tool greatly benefits the future growth and connectivity of the Hodges University Alumni Association.
Alumni newsletters are published electronically. To keep connected, register for free at alumni.hodges.edu. The members of the Alumni Association also receive the newsletter, The Torch, published each semester by University Advancement. It keeps the alumni informed of news of the University, updates, alumni news and programs, meetings and profiles of alumni successes.
Please keep the Alumni Association updated of any address and employment changes, professional accomplishments, and general alumni news so you may receive this newsletter and possibly be included in the publications or profiled on the social network. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A current email address is important for alumni contact and receipt of alumni information.
Also, please remember to contact the Registrar’s Office to update directory information such as: email address, home address, or phone number.
Throughout the academic year, the Alumni Association will hold meetings announced through the alumni newsletter and postings on the Hodges University Alumni Association network. All graduates are encouraged to attend and participate as plans are made for events, programs, club and organizational meetings, as well as news of alumni services. The gatherings offer an excellent opportunity for networking and visiting with other Hodges University alumni.
Your Alma Mater, Hodges University, wishes to maintain a positive relationship with its graduates and strongly supports the development of a proactive Alumni Association. Alumni may assist the institution through student referrals, professional mentorships, testimonials, and responding to the annual surveys from the Institutional Effectiveness Committee.
Please help the University by “spreading the word” of the quality of education available at Hodges University to the community. The future of your Alma Mater depends on continued enrollment of qualified, interested students. Encourage prospective students to consider attending Hodges University.
