Alumni Association Unveils Economic Response Package
The University of Michigan Alumni Association is working to help Michigan alumni and their families deal with the challenges of today's economy. The association has created a new webpage (http://www.umalumni.com/economicresponse) that focuses on the benefits that alumni most need now. These include job postings, career counseling, career-focused podcasts, short-term health benefits, and other savings and discounts.
In addition, the site has a section highlighting ways that employed alumni can help others in the Michigan network by volunteering as career mentors and posting jobs at their companies. Alumni who have the means are encouraged to join the Association and contribute to the Economic Hardship Fund. Member dues and the emergency fund subsidize these complimentary memberships and all of the Association's programs and services.
The Alumni Association continues to support its members and future members in various ways, including outreach to students and the development of new programs and extension of current programs to respond to alumni needs. Please feel free to contact them with any questions.
