Office of Alumni Relations

Greetings Aggie Alumni:

I am extremely excited to be in Aggieland to assist and harness the passion of all alumni who love and support North Carolina A&T State University.

Effective immediately, the Office of Alumni Affairs has been renamed the Office of Alumni Relations. The name change reflects the unification of the University and the Alumni Association with the goal of building and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with our diverse group of alumni. In addition to the name change, this newly adopted model changed the organization’s lead title from director to associate vice chancellor. As associate vice chancellor and executive director of the Alumni Association, I will serve as a conduit between alumni, the Alumni Association and the University. This is the best opportunity to be certain the voice of alumni is heard, by ensuring the Alumni Association is serving a greater purpose to a broader alumni base and the University's goals are being met through effective programming.

My responsibilities include developing a comprehensive program that creates engagement opportunities and builds a lifelong partnership between alumni and the university. I will institute a wide array of programs and activities that stimulate alumni participation and cultivate students in support of the university’s mission. I will also be responsible for improving the operational infrastructure of the Alumni Association, increasing alumni resources, and generating revenue. This role also requires me to develop, implement and execute a strategic alumni relations plan that includes events, programs and communications utilizing many distribution channels to engage alumni, students and friends.

In my short time in Aggieland, I have shared my amazement of Aggie alumni. Undeniably, this alumni base is the most passionate I have ever seen, heard and now have the pleasure of working with you to move from good to great. I challenge all of you to join me in pushing pass the norm to harness your passion into a level of engagement and participation that surpasses all expectations. I look forward to collaborating with all of you in developing engagement opportunities through partnership and strategic alliances to provide greater alumni programming.

In Aggie Excellence,
Rosetta L. Clay
Associate Vice Chancellor for Alumni Relations/
Executive Director of Alumni Association
