The university’s development – from the technical college, to the college of further education, to the University of Liechtenstein we know today – has brought many changes in its train. But with a view to enabling our alumni, in their many walks of life, to stay in touch with one another, the University of Liechtenstein Alumni (ULA) club represents a central platform for exchanges between the generations.
There are plenty of possibilities, ranging from the newsletter to ‘Alumni of the Month’ and the annual reunion, for former students to stay in touch after completion of their studies, and to continue to play an active part in the life of the University of Liechtenstein and of its people – as an Alumni Ambassador, for instance. This enables prospective students to get in touch with graduates of the university, in order to find out at first hand what it means to be part of the University of Liechtenstein community.
University of Liechtenstein Alumni (ULA)
The aim of the University of Liechtenstein Alumni (ULA) is an alumni management that is jointly organized by the University of Liechtenstein and the alumni themselves.
We want to strengthen the ties among the former students and the relationship with the University and its students as well as lifelong learning and the mutual exchange of experience.
On August 5, 2014, the rectorate has approved the by-laws of ULA.
The organs of the ULA are the Coordination Office for Alumni of the University of Liechtenstein as well as an advisory board that consists of engaged alumni. The Coordination Office for Alumni is the direct connection of all alumni to the University of Liechtenstein. The Coordination Office is accompanied and advised by the board, which is open to all interested alumni.
ULA is based on the conviction that successful alumni work can only be lived if university and alumni act together. Together, work priorities and strategies are developed and decided.
The main tasks of the volunteer advisory board are providing advice and ideas for ULA and the Coordination Office. The board shall assist the alumni work by the introduction of projects and ideas, through direct contact with other alumni.
The Coordination Office sees itself as a communication platform, coordinates the operations of the ULA, maintains the database, and is the first point of contact for members. Regional groups and course-specific groups are supported by the Coordination Office in all matters. The Coordination Office cultivates and maintains the social-media platforms and groups and inform members with regular newsletters about current developments at the University of Liechtenstein, activities and career opportunities for alumni.
We would be delighted if as many of you would join this new organization in order to enlarge the network, continue to shape the development of the university and to maintain contact with the university but also to former fellow students.
