“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”- Nelson Mandela, awarded an honorary doctorate by Stellenbosch University, 1996.
Graduating from university is a big step in your life’s journey. Once you have obtained your degree, you form part of the alumni community and Stellenbosch University remains your intellectual home. The Alumni Relations Office strives to keep you connected to your alma mater long after the euphoria of obtaining your qualification/s has died down.
The success of a university depends greatly on the participation of its alumni. To facilitate these connections, our strategy rests on five pillars: engagement and cultivation, communication, volunteer management, early student engagement and alumni giving. Each pillar forms an integral part of the process of generating more opportunities for you to stay connected to the University, creating a stronger bond not only between the University and its alumni, but also among alumni.
