A Message From Dawn:

"Southern Connecticut State University has thousands of graduates who have amazing stories and incredible accomplishments, both personally and professionally.  One of my primary responsibilities as a prospect researcher is follow our alumni, here in Connecticut and all over the world, as they use their talents to make a difference – as an entrepreneur, as an educator, in a lab, on a stage or athletic field, or one of the many other settings where Southern alumni are finding success.  Keeping accurate information on our alumni enables the Alumni Relations department to keep our graduates connected to the School and each other through newsletters, events and volunteer opportunities.  Alumni research is also important in seeking support that alumni can offer to make quality education possible for our current students.

As a prospect research officer I also work to identify community organizations, foundations and businesses that can offer support and valuable partnerships that will move Southern toward its mission to provide exemplary education and its commitment to academic excellence, access, social justice and service for the public good. 

Every day I am excited to discover a new Southern success story or opportunity.  Keep them coming!"
