Message from Alumni Relations

As Associate Vice President, Advancement with responsibility for Alumni Relations, I and Miss Cheryll Messam, our Alumni Relations Manager, are excited to be among the first to congratulate you on achieving this significant milestone of becoming a graduate of the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech Ja.). You are now part of a remarkable history and a fine tradition of excellence. UTech Ja. has so much to be proud of and all of which is made possible by the support of many. You are a part of our success. Congratulations Class of 2016! We are proud of you!

We are so honoured that you chose to be a part of the UTech, Ja. family and we in the Alumni Relations Office, look forward to journeying with you in this next stage of your personal and professional development, post graduation. Our mission is three fold: 1) to connect our alumni to each other to ensure networking benefits for personal, professional and business development; 2) to connect our alumni to the University to build our volunteer, donor and advocacy capacity; and 3) to connect our alumni to our current student body, so that   students are connected with persons who can inspire them to overcome challenges, attain seemingly elusive goals and achieve success!

Apart from our Alumni Relations Office, which is a unit within the University's organizational structure, there are other independent affiliate groups which also share alumni interests. For example, The Alumni Association, UTech Ja; the Alumni Chapters in Florida and New York; and the Alumni Special Interest Groups such as the Pharmacy and Architecture Alumni Groups are key organizations, which are also committed to providing you with networking support for personal, professional & business development; as well as opportunities to remain connected to our University. These various alumni affiliates have been strong and effective supporters of UTech, Ja. and have provided support through scholarships for students; job search opportunities for fellow alumni; and donations of equipment and other resources. We recommend that you join the Association and/or a Chapter or a Special Interest Group. and offer your creative ideas through membership on their sub-committees. We in the Alumni Relations Office can connect you with the various affiliate groups. So contact us today at ph: 876-970-5468 or if you are ready to join the Alumni Association, UTech, Ja., we have dedicated a page on the University's Alumni Blog to share their application with you for download at http://utechalumni.wordpress.com/alumni-association-utech-membership-application-form/

We look forward to meeting and serving you. We are available and only too happy to discuss your ideas and feedback, as well as share tips on job hunting and career & business development. We are ready to support your success, so please stay in touch!
