Office of Alumni Relations

Recognizing that the success of Bethune-Cookman University is directly related to the commitment and enthusiasm of its graduates, the Office of Alumni Relations helps B-CU graduates stay connected to their classmates and the University.

Alumni Relations coordinates class reunions and alumni activities during Homecoming, the Florida Classic, Commencement, and other special events. The Office of Alumni Relations also communicates important campus news to alumni and maintains a database of all B-CU graduates which can be updated through the B-CU website. Additionally, the Office of Alumni Relations encourages all alumni to support B-CU through participation in fundraising efforts. Alumni played a key role in raising funds for the future Larry R. Handfield Athletic Training Center.

There are a number of opportunities for B-CU graduates to take an active role in alumni affairs which are coordinated through the Office of Alumni Relations. These include becoming class agents, mentors or volunteer recruiters.

Pre-Alumni Council

Current students are encouraged to participate in the Pre-Alumni Council, an undergraduate networking unit of the National Alumni Council of the United Negro College Fund. The major purposes of the Pre-Alumni Council are to expose undergraduates to the role alumni play in sustaining the mission of the University, to train students in basic fundraising techniques, and to provide opportunities to experience fundraising activities that support B-CU. Each year, a Miss Pre-Alumni is selected to represent the university at the annual conference of the National Pre-Alumni Council and National Alumni Council of the United Negro College Fund.


National Alumni Association

The alumni relations manager serves as the University’s liaison with the B-CU National Alumni Association (NAA), an independent 501c3 organization that plays an important role by supporting the mission of the University and strengthening the bonds alumni have with each other and the institution. Through fundraising initiatives like the Life Membership Campaign, the annual Ms. Alumna Contest, and targeted efforts to increase alumni contributions, the NAA helps meet the needs of today’s students. The NAA also helps to find future B-CU students through a variety of recruiting efforts at the local chapter level.

Thus, he proudly delivered a check for $60,000 to Bethune-Cookman University, and quietly asked that the funds be used to help current students pay for their education.
