Greetings wherever you happen to be in the world!
It's exciting for me to have this venue to tell you this is a great time to be a Philadelphia University alum, and introduce myself to you as the chair of the President's Partnership for International Alumni (PPIA).
Ours is an institution with a national and international reputation for quality education, illustrated by the fact that our students come from 38 states and 30 countries. Here, tradition and innovation co-exist, creating a university on the move. We are, above all, a 21st century, global institution that is preparing the professionals of tomorrow for the world's marketplace. Our family, of which you are a member, offers opportunities around the world for camaraderie and networking. And, our growing institution and increasing world presence are strong reasons for an International Alumni organization.
The PPIA is charged with designing and implementing a process for re-connecting and strengthening the relationship between international alumni and the University. By coordinating regional events and establishing local chapters around the world, alums will be presented with exciting personal and professional opportunities.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com with any comments, questions or ideas about how the PPIA may best serve International Alumni.
Plan to visit this site often for updates on our progress. Look forward to hearing from you.
