The Regis University Alumni and Parent Relations Department reaches out to generations of former students, and with University growth the challenge of this continually increases. Ways the Department can enhance support to graduates of the Rueckert-Hartman School for Health Professions (RHSHP) were explored through varied media. The action research included interviews, an alumni survey, consultation with sister Jesuit schools, and review of secondary literature specific to the topic of alumni associations and organizational change. Results suggest that the Alumni and Parent Relations Department must openly communicate with the leadership of RHSHP in order to succeed in supporting the unique needs of the graduates, offering industry specific outreach, collaborating in the distribution of communication materials, and drawing from the expertise of multiple perspectives.
