Kyle Barnhart, Alumni Relations assistant, said the series offers
alumni opportunities to hear from experts on topics relevant to
personal and professional life.
"The webinar series has allowed us to reach alumni across the
country, including those whose schedules make it more difficult to
attend in-person events, and provide a professional development
opportunity, which is something alumni have wanted," Barnhart said.
Previous webinars are archived on the Alumni Association's YouTube channel.
Melissa Peraino, director of educational outreach, Center for Adult
and Continuing Studies, said the partnership with Alumni Relations was
natural as the two departments serve similar people.
"We both work with adults who are lifelong learners, some in
formal opportunities, and others more informally," Peraino said.
"We wanted to create an opportunity in which alumni and lifelong
learners from the community could re-engage (for alumni) or be
connected to the expertise of the university and could do so
virtually, broadening the reach of those we serve."
