The university encourages everyone in general and alumni to renew the bonds of interdependence between them and the university through collective contribution and support, which enables the university to deal with urgent needs, unexpected opportunities, and new ideas. The alumni center and career development deal with alumni Contributions directly upon receipt through the official channels, which are considered an essential complement to the endowments of the university, which are invested in the long term.
The alumni’s contributions are a message to the university community (new students, faculty members, administration...etc.) and the whole community that it is possible to rely on alumni as a source of strength and an effective representative of all activities and events organized by the university, whether internally or externally. In addition, the contributions and volunteering of graduates gain them more knowledge and enrich and develop their skills.
The Alumni and Career Development Center offers a sustainable initiative where it receives graduates as volunteers and prepares, trains, and qualifies them inside the center through the various activities, events, and works carried out by the center, in addition to directing them to many colleges within the university to join them as volunteers. In addition, the center guides and nominates graduates for various community volunteer work.
