Message from the Director of Advancement (with responsibility for Alumni Relations)

This is the corporate page of the University of Technology, Jamaica Alumni Association (UTech Alumni) formerly, the College of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) Past Students' Association). As Director of Advancement (with responsibility for Alumni Relations), I am happy to welcome you to our newly revised site. We promise to use this medium to improve communication to and among UTech alumni and friends across the globe – an activity I am sure will foster greater unity among the groups and facilitate growth and development individually and collectively.

UTech Alumni Association consists of various Chapters and related Executive Committees elected from and by the alumni body. All committee members are volunteers. The Alumni Relations Office on the Papine campus provides support to the Alumni Chapters and is also the official link between the University and alumni.

Stick to the UTech Family
With your support, we can expand the services of the Association to facilitate among other things, opportunities for personal development, networking and real fun. We want you to take advantage of the resources available to help you succeed in life not just in Jamaica but on the world stage as well. In this regard, we are expanding/strengthening your University's alumni relations activities. We are about to establish more chapters in other parts of the world and improve communication/links with our graduates. We not only want you to leave with a UTech certificate, we want to help you make it work for you to become more fulfilled individuals as we help to open doors/opportunities for you which would otherwise be inaccessible. Kindly review the exciting activities by your peers in various chapters and the many opportunities afforded you as an alumnus, then sign up immediately to access them. Be an active member of the UTech Family.

An opportunity to give back
Like most universities worldwide, UTech needs your support to improve and expand its services to the community. We encourage you to embrace the opportunity to participate in national development by educating our people and equipping them with the requisite skills and training facilitated by UTech. Please watch this site and other media for more information about the University's Endowment Fund and the means of supporting the fund in cash and kind.

I know most of our graduates have great ideas about building this noble institution. I am available and only too happy to discuss your ideas and feedback. Please stay in touch!
