With the launch of the Class Ambassador program, Fairfield aims to enhance communication with alumni across the U.S. and abroad
We hope that the Class Ambassador program will become the foundation of the alumni community.
— R. Peter White, Fairfield’s associate director of Reunion Giving and Class Ambassadors
Fairfield is currently seeking alumni who are enthusiastic about the University’s future to join the newly launched Class Ambassador program. With over 40,000 alumni across the United States and abroad, Fairfield is aiming to continue its commitment to keeping alumni connected and engaged through the Class Ambassador program.
The program will be comprised of alumni volunteers who will help build excitement, encourage participation, and create awareness about the need for philanthropic support for the University. Class Ambassadors' peer-to-peer outreach can have an enormous impact on class connectivity, event attendance, and giving participation. To ensure that the University and ambassadors are implementing strategies to maximize alumni engagement, Fairfield staff will have face-to-face strategy sessions with Class Ambassadors in major cities.
“Leading schools, like Fairfield University, are built on strong alumni engagement,” explained R. Peter White, Fairfield’s associate director of Reunion Giving and Class Ambassadors. “We hope that the Class Ambassador program will become a foundation of the alumni community. The average rate of alumni donors each year affects a university’s rankings and its ability to compete for the very best students and faculty. Class Ambassadors can significantly increase alumni connections, leading to higher alumni engagement and donor participation rates.”
Fairfield encourages any alumnus with a willingness to reach out to classmates and help them reconnect with the University to join our Class Ambassador program. For more information, visit fairfield.edu/ambassador or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
