USQ alumni connect through international chapters

WITH about 92,000 alumni across 146 countries, University of Southern Queensland's (USQ) international alumni chapters have never been more popular.

 

USQ currently has 18 international chapters and Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Jan Thomas said the University was always looking for ways to support its alumni through a range of activities, services and networking opportunities.

 

"USQ alumni continue to heighten our global brand recognition in various countries around the world which assists to identify and facilitate research opportunities, industry partnerships and student mobility opportunities," Professor Thomas said.

 

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students and Communities) Carl Rallings said USQ graduates who join an alumni chapter can enjoy a range of benefits.

 

"Chapters are a great way for alumni to expand their networks, both professionally and personally, find out about events and professional development opportunities, and to continue to grow and learn with fellow alumni," Mr Rallings said.

 

"Our chapters work closely together to host events, share information and celebrate each other's successes." Mr Rallings said an example of this was the formation of the USQ Asia Alumni Steering Committee. "This was an initiative spearheaded by the USQ Singapore Alumni Chapter," he said.

 

"The steering committee brings together representatives from 10 of our Asian-based chapters to drive greater regional collaboration for professional development and networking opportunities while also strengthening the USQ brand."

 

The USQ Malaysia Alumni Chapter recently hosted an alumni reception for former students to reconnect with fellow USQ alumni and network with USQ executive staff.

 

More than 100 members of the Malaysia and Singapore Alumni Chapters attended the Kuala Lumpur event which included special guests Singapore Alumni Chapter Chair Dr Jason Yap, Malaysia Australia Alumni Council Vice-President Adrian Ong and 2015 USQ Community Service Alumnus of the Year Louis Liu.
