Alumni connections

The Alumni & Development arm of MACO is routinely called upon by Flinders people who are looking to make connections with alumni members, former staff (including retired staff members), students and recent graduates.

Predominantly, enquiries are in regards to

  • alumni or student participation in research or other programs
  • alumni or former staff reunions and awards
  • alumni or former staff contributions to conferences and publications
  • other professional development or profile raising activities including networking events
  • alumni achievements of note.
In these instances MACO is able to provide information and support in the following capacity:
  • strategic support and advice to faculties, departments, centres and other groups on establishing and maintaining continuing links with their alumni, students and former staff
  • contact details for alumni
  • protocol advice in relation to events, awards, international alumni relations
  • planning support for events
  • Flinders branded merchandise, gifts and promotional collateral such as presentation folders.

For more information about getting in touch with Flinders Alumni, or if you become aware of an alumnus who has achieved something of note, we invite you to contact the Alumni and Development team.
