Alumni Relations and Donor Engagement Receive Membership to PCUAD

Creighton University has been granted membership in PCUAD: The Association of Private College and University Alumni Directors. PCUAD was founded to provide its members a forum to share and benchmark information that can improve each institution‘s alumni programs; to provide professional support to one another; and to serve the advancement profession by doing and sharing research with the profession, enabling staffs to share information with their functional colleagues among member institutions, and supporting the creation of other similar groups.

PCUAD generally strives to have no more than forty members at any given time. PCUAD’s members are all private colleges or universities that have a student body of at least 5,000 students and serve a constituency of at least 50,000 living alumni (including both graduate and undergraduate populations). The members also have at least five (5) full-time alumni relations staff and an annual budget of at least $500,000, including both operating expenses and compensation, dedicated to the central alumni relations program.

Creighton is pleased to join the ranks of sister institutions such as Fordham, Marquette and Santa Clara, as well as institutions such as Stanford, Dartmouth and Harvard.  This membership will serve to foster and development the work of Creighton Alumni Relations, as well as that of the PCUAD membership through collaboration.
