Affinity Partner Contact

A number of benefits and services are available to Michigan Tech alumni, many of which are provided through corporate partnerships developed by your Alumni Association. In addition to providing services to our members, affinity partnerships also generate revenue to support programs undertaken by your Alumni Association. A sub-committee of the Board of Directors meets regularly to carefully review these partnerships and determine how the funds are spent.

As a direct result of alumni participation in these affinity services, your Alumni Association is able to fund numerous initiatives in support of Michigan Tech students and alumni.

On occasion, the Alumni Association authorizes its affinity partners to conduct direct mail campaigns. The Alumni Association has strict confidentiality agreements with these firms for the sole purpose of conducting these marketing campaigns. If alumni so choose, they can opt out of any or all affinity service communications.
