Alumni Relations Transformation
Implementation Team Report
On April 11, 2008, President Richard L. McCormick emailed a letter to Rutgers alumni about the latest developments in the university’s ongoing effort to establish a strong new partnership between Rutgers University and its alumni. Among the latest news are the results of the Implementation Team’s work to turn the university’s vision for alumni relations into a reality.
The Implementation Team’s recommendations outline a proposed structure and constitution for the new Rutgers University Alumni Association (RUAA), to which every Rutgers graduate will automatically belong without the requirement of membership dues. Every member will receive Rutgers Magazine and regular information about events and opportunities at Rutgers.

On April 24, the Board of Governors will consider the adoption of a resolution formally establishing the RUAA and providing for its structure and governance. The RUAA will then begin its work on behalf of all Rutgers alumni.
President McCormick also announced that James H. Rhodes, a 1994 graduate of the Camden College of Arts and Sciences, has agreed to serve as the first chair of the new RUAA Board. Rhodes is the former president of the Rutgers University–Camden Alumni Association and was a member of the Alumni Task Force and Implementation Team. We are confident that his leadership and experience will enable the RUAA to get off to a strong start.
