To spreading the Flyer spirit

Our staff believes in UD, just like you. Some of us are fellow graduates. Those of us who aren’t, well, we experience the magic of this beloved Marianist university, too. We all belong to a community uniquely devoted to the common good … not because it looks or sounds right. It is right. This truth resonates through our hearts and minds, and we’re thankful to be a part of it.

Our Reunion Weekend program would not be as successful as it is without the passion and dedication of alumni volunteers. Connecting with your classmates through peer-to-peer outreach drives the success of the program. You are our voices to your friends, classmates and housemates! Working with our dedicated volunteers makes me proud to work for and be a graduate of the University.

Anita Brothers, director of alumni relations and engagement
The Marianist educational philosophy of educating the whole person is evident in how this community works together. We would absolutely not be who we are today without the support of alumni volunteers.
