How to Make a Virtual Alumni Office for Your Institution?

As graduates of the institution, alumni have a special connection with the university. Harnessing the same, it is very necessary for the institutions to stay closely connected with their alumni community, no matter what comes.

During certain unavoidable situations, like the COVID-19 attack, we strongly believe that the Alumni Engagement should stay consistent and ongoing as it is the time to stay together and face the challenge. However, it becomes difficult for the Alumni Offices to manage all alumni operations away from the workplace.

With the Virtual Alumni Office, you can stay connected with your alumni online and keep them updated of the latest information. Here are the few ways in which you can Build Your Own Virtual Office in 4 Easy Steps:
