A Strong Foundation Building For Your Child Is A Must: Start Before It’s Too Late

During economic downturns, educational institutions often face reduced placement rates, limiting opportunities for young graduates. According to a recent Times of India report, 30-35% of students from top Indian institutions have not secured jobs this year. In such challenging contexts, leveraging alumni networks can benefit educational institutions by providing direct placement opportunities and enriching the academic experience through networking, mentorship, and support. 

The Power of Alumni Contribution: 

More Placement Opportunities-  Alumni can play a pivotal role in providing placement opportunities for recent graduates. Institutions like IIM Lucknow and BITS Pilani have successfully harnessed the power of their alumni networks. IIM Lucknow, in particular, has gained attention for its proactive engagement on X (formerly Twitter), showcasing how social media can be utilised effectively. However, Univariety has taken a unique approach to engage alumni in a more organized way- 

  • Real-Time Interaction: Univariety’s platform allows for immediate engagement, enabling colleges to interact with alumni instantly and address any queries or concerns promptly.

Financial Benefits of Alumni Contributions: 

Educational institutions, often face financial constraints due to capped fees and limited revenue from ancillary sales. An active alumni network can provide significant financial support through donations and fundraising activities.

Key Points:

  • Structured and consistent alumni engagement programs can unlock the full potential of financial contributions.
  • Delaying alumni fundraising can result in a loss of approximately 4% of potential contributions.
  • Engaged alumni networks can help institutions navigate budget constraints effectively.

Alumni Contribution to Marketing and Admission: 

A strong alumni community serves as a powerful testament to the quality of education provided by an institution. Alumni success stories can be leveraged to enhance marketing efforts, improve admission rates, and build a positive reputation.

Effective Marketing Strategies- 

  • Distributing student success stories across various platforms can significantly reduce the “cost per lead” and improve conversion rates to enrollment.
  • Detailed reviews from alumni about their positive experiences enhance the institution’s online reputation.
  • Alumni participation in admission open houses provides prospective students and their families with firsthand insights into the institution’s impact.
