Message from the President of the College of Engineering Alumni Association
Dear Alumni and Friends of UM College of Engineering,
Welcome to your portal for interacting with the College and its alumni. All alumni of the College of Engineering are automatically members of the College of Engineering Alumni Association (CoEAA), and we invite you to join us at one of our many events throughout the year, connect with us online and be engaged.
One of the primary goals of our alumni association is to create opportunities to connect you with the College of Engineering and the University of Miami in ways that are meaningful to you. Your involvement directly impacts current students – with scholarship funds to reduce financial hardship, mentorship as they start off their careers and job opportunities.
This academic year we hope to accomplish the following:
- Increase the number of alumni participating in all events, including the Homecoming Breakfast and Welcome to the Club.
- Engage with our alumni through our social media channels.
- Support the College through fundraising, especially Madness in March.
Finally, I ask that you support the college by making an annual gift to the College of Engineering Scholarship Fund. As part of the celebration of the College of Engineering’s 70th anniversary, alumnus Eric Cheng (BSBE ’95, MSIE ’01) is spearheading a unique 70 for 70 Giving Challenge, which asks CoE alumni and friends to give a total of $35,000 in gifts and pledges to the College of Engineering Scholarship Fund. Eric and several other alumni will match these gifts, for a $70,000 total.
We look forward to your participation. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or suggestions. I can be reached at email@example.com.
