The Development & Alumni Relations Office
The Development & Alumni Relations Office aims to give University of Otago alumni the opportunity to be involved in a rich, diverse, and rewarding relationship with the University.
We are in contact with more than 86,000 alumni in over 130 countries and connect with them through alumni events, reunions, co-ordinating the mail-out of the award winning University of Otago Magazine and other activities in New Zealand and abroad. We also organise an Alumni Appeal to raise funds for scholarships and research.
The Office also assists University divisions and departments to maintain and strengthen relationships with former students, who continue to benefit from their Otago experience long after graduation.
The Development & Alumni Relations Office came into being in 2009 with the merger of the Alumni Office, which manages the University's alumni relations programme, and the Development Office which managed the University's Advancement activities.
