New Tradition of Engagement Offered to Graduates: Philanthropy Cords

by Emile Parker, MBA – Director of Alumni Relations
The Division of Advancement and the Office of Alumni Relations congratulate the 2019 graduates on this huge life milestone, and we also welcome them to the great Oakwood alumni family and access to its incredible global network.     With our goal of creating a culture of full engagement and philanthropy, the Office of Alumni Relations offered the Class of 2019 an opportunity to “Wear A Philanthropy Cord” to display their commitment to giving back. These graduates made their first love gift to Oakwood of just $20.19, and completed a “Pledge to Serve” card. The maroon Philanthropy Cord recognizes these graduates as philanthropists. May the class of 2019 always remember their love relationship with their alma mater. .
