Getting involved as an alumni!
Our efforts to reconnect with alumni are going wonderfully! Your continued support is instrumental in the success of our current and future students and we greatly appreciate all that you do.
We are working on a few projects that we hope will continue to foster the growing relationship between the current students and our alumni. Our goals as a department have always been centered around our students and ensuring they are prepared for the next step in either their career or their education. Keeping with that, we will be holding a Curriculum Advisory Committee Meeting this fall and would be honored to have our alumni join us in reviewing our undergraduate program, to ensure that each student is receiving the tools they need to be successful after they leave the department. If you are interested in participating in this meeting, we encourage you to contact Jessica Black (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Mark Morgan (email@example.com) for more details.
Recent graduate, Alexis Hamilton M.S., is leading the effort in creating The UT Food Science Alumni Network. We are looking for enthusiastic Vols For Life to begin establishing informal regional chapters of Food Science Alumni, to act as mentors, supporters of the department, and examples of Volunteer Food Science spirit. If you are interested in taking over a region in your area or joining a regional chapter, contact Alexis Hamilton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jessica Black (email@example.com).
