UMBC’s alumni community is more than 83,000 strong, with Retrievers making amazing contributions all around the world, and even on our own campuses. So, when someone visits our “community of inquiring minds” physically, virtually, or through our marketing materials and websites, it is important to make sure they know that we care about our Retriever community members near and far.
One way to do this is for us all to use consistent alumni attributions in our marketing, communications, and social media. Check out the Alumni Styles page on the Brand and Style Guide for examples of how this is done.
