These programs and projects will not be possible without alumni support and input. Our students need your guidance and expertise. In Bishkek people lament that their country is not as great as it could be. AUCA students and alumni are the people who are out in the world to lead this transformation. If you want to see the Kyrgyz Republic succeed, come back and help us succeed. You can help move AUCA forward, opening doors in Central Asia and beyond.
With a new president and an energetic, fresh approach, the Alumni Association renews its mission to empower the AUCA community in Bishkek, in the Kyrgyz Republic, and around the world.
During the next year, the Alumni Association will meet and hear ideas from any alumnus who wishes to share ways the Alumni Association can work better for AUCA Alumni.
We have already had one successful meeting in early September, and plan to have many more. Ideas from your classmates included: Smaller, more frequent alumni events, an alumni advisory council, more access to career services, more consistent communication, and DVDs of initiation.
AUCA is undergoing major changes, and we want alumni to be involved. We are working on plans for a new campus, we are developing a new Central Asia Institute to bring scholars from across the world to Bishkek, and we are expanding our continuing education and community outreach programs.
