Letter from the Alumni Director

Seeking success

If you dream it, you can do it.
 — Walt Disney

Success comes in many forms and can be defined in numerous ways as you’ll read in this innovative issue of Engage. But no matter how it is characterized, success truly is our focus in serving the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s alumni.

We constantly seek ways to help our 80,000-plus graduates living and working around the globe reach their personal and professional goals. We offer myriad services and benefits, such as free alumni email accounts, career services, travel programs and discounts at local, regional and national businesses.

We also are devoted to celebrating the successes of our alumni. Whether you strive to excel in your professional, community or personal life … or all three, we love to share your amazing stories.

October is our favorite time of year because that’s when we celebrate Homecoming and honor the successes of our top graduates through the UWO Alumni Association’s annual awards and recognition program. On pages 16–17, you’ll learn how UWO played a part in the achievements of our 2013 alumni award winners. We hope you’ll be inspired.

On another note, we’ve taken a new approach to our storytelling in this edition of Engage by recording an in-depth discussion about success with a cross-section of members of our UWO community. That session at the chancellor’s residence serves as the foundation for our cover feature and tons of bonus content for our online and new tablet version of Engage.

Take care,
Christine Gantner, Alumni Director
