Donny Marshall ’95, a current alumni trustee and former men’s basketball captain, wrote a letter to association members, who will be voting on whether or not to accept a new model for alumni engagement.
“My fellow trustees and I recently voted to embrace a new concept in which UConn would consolidate its alumni relations efforts under a single entity, the UConn Foundation, which would lead all alumni engagement and programming in Connecticut, across the country, and around the globe in more meaningful ways than ever before,” he wrote. “We believe this approach should come at no membership cost to alumni, who’ve already paid for the privilege of staying connected to their alma mater through their efforts in the classroom and subsequently in life as ambassadors of UConn.”
