The Northwestern Alumni Association has been recognized for the success of three of its innovative programs for alumni.


The NAA received awards in October from the regional branch of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) for its Dinner with Twelve, Global Ambassadors, and 'Cats Connect programs.


The Dinner with Twelve program enables alumni to host a dinner for current students at their home or a restaurant, with the hope that everyone at the dinner leaves as new friends.


The Global Ambassadors program allows alumni who live outside the United States to volunteer to build relationships with alumni, current and prospective students, and friends of the University in areas that may not already be represented by an international alumni club.


Finally, 'Cats Connect networking events enable current students to get career advice from alumni and give alumni a chance to meet and learn from each other.
