Background Information:

The Alumni Relations Unit of the College was established by the College Management on June 5, 2018.  Over the years, it has been observed that the role of Alumni in all tertiary institutions cannot be underestimated.  This underscores the need to federate all class sets of Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo in order to actively engage all ex-graduates of the College to participate meaningfully in the development of the College based on the fact that the Alumni Relations practice is a global trend in higher education.

Their Role in Attracting Goodwill to their “Alma-Mater”

The role of Alumni in attracting goodwill to their Institution via their Department, Institute, Faculty and School is endless and for the purpose of this presentation we will consider the few listed below:

  • Alumni, being formally constituted as our number one supporter help to generate need list and also run with the vision of procuring necessary facilities through donations and / or organise fundraising directly or indirectly.
  • They are sound instrument of crisis management. If there is any crisis in their “Alma Mater”, they serve as peace maker and agent of reconciliation by finding a lasting solution rather than fuelling the duel.
  • Alumni do contribute to an investment programme of their Institution and uplift their Institution’s endowment. It is not out of place for Department, Institute, School and Faculty or Class Set to institute their separate endowment plan and actively engage their Alumni.
  • They assist their Institution in local and international Collaboration and linkages, thereby expanding the frontier of support to their Alma Mater.
  • They influence the reviewing of curriculum to suit the needs of the society and the industry where they hold the ace, if properly engaged. This eventually affects the rating and fortune of their “alma-mater”
  • Alumni organise fundraising programme in / without conjunction of the Institution for capital projects of their “Alma-Mater”
  • Alumni through their Association uses her platform to demand from government a better deal for the welfare of the staff of their Institution. They are like a pressure group that government listen to in critical situation.
  • They use often their professional connections to attract investors / donors / sponsors to fund some projects and programmes in their Institution.
  • Alumni in diasporas link their “Alma-mater” with International Foundations, Trusts, Non-Governmental Organisations, Grant-makers to aid their Institutions and students.
  • At the local level, they organise fund-raising activities at various Class Sets, Branches and Chapters to advance the progress of their Institution.
  • The Alumni if well engaged has the ability and capability to influence the students’ body positively to contribute to the development of the Alma Mater.
  • Alumni provide scholarships and endow prices / awards for the benefits of the brilliant and indigent students.
  • At old age, Alumni wills some of their properties to their “alma-mater” as bequests.

A. Adefabi, presented certificates of induction to our final year students.  Above all, all the Principal Officers of the College were in attendance.  It was indeed a memorable day in the history of the College.
