Welcome Alumni

Let me extend my best wishes and greetings to our alumni!

It is a truism by now that the best measure of a university’s success is the success of its graduates. This college is the younger of the two colleges at Michigan Tech; we don’t have as many students, and our graduates have not had as much time to launch their careers. But we still see plenty of evidence of successful lives and careers. Indeed, nothing makes us more proud than hearing how the education they received at Tech has helped propel our alumni to their current station in life.

We imagine that many of you will find the landscape of the college, both in terms of the physical nature of campus and of the intellectual opportunities that exist here, is quite different from what you experienced. That’s as it should be, given the dynamic growth of degree programs and the steady shift—driven by an emphasis within the University’s strategic plan—to strengthen graduate education and research. We are pursuing that goal without compromising Michigan Tech’s reputation for excellence in undergraduate education. We are also pursuing plans in every department that are consistent with Tech’s technological focus. Our activities remain targeted and carefully chosen, and we believe that you will find activities that give real meaning to the phrase technological university in the degree programs and research efforts highlighted here.

We hope you will browse the departmental websites, for here you will gain a true sense of the exciting activities underway at Michigan Tech. In addition, please take a minute and check out the giving opportunities identified for each area. It’s another truism that universities—more than ever—rely upon the support and loyalty of their alumni and friends. Your assistance and gifts have never been so important.

Best wishes!
Bruce Seely
