Young Alumni

Young Alumni (YA), defined as graduates of the last decade, make up approximately 20% of the University’s 173,000 alumni population. As we work to develop programs and experiences to serve the unique needs and interests of this group feedback and guidance from alumni will play a critical role in that process.

If we may call upon you to evaluate and generate ideas, please send your full name and email address to Diane Wikso, AS10, AS12M, Associate Director for Young Alumni Programs.

Participation at UD

Your gift of any size matters! Alumni participation is defined as the total number of undergraduate alumni donors divided by the total number of contactable undergraduate alumni. The percentage of undergraduate alumni who annually participate in our fundraising efforts is used as an indicator of alumni satisfaction. This indicator, among many others, impacts how UD is ranked among other schools in US News & World Report and influences how the University is considered for grants.
