Let's connect!

Engagement Center

What is the Engagement Center?

The St. Thomas Engagement Center mission is to help you stay meaningfully engaged with the university. Engagement Center students connect with alumni, donors, parents and friends in exciting ways to deepen existing relationships and cultivate new ones. By using new technologies, the Engagement Center facilitates thoughtful conversations and expands the scope of communications with texting, video interaction and social media. Our enthusiastic group of students, an extension of the St. Thomas Annual Giving team, looks forward to speaking with you!

What we do: 

Our Student Engagement Ambassadors connect with alumni and friends of the university to share exciting news about St. Thomas initiatives. Ambassadors may reach out to invite you to an event, thank you for a gift, gather updates from you, share what’s new on campus, or offer you the opportunity to make a gift in support of areas at St. Thomas about which you are most passionate. We look forward to keeping you connected with the University of St. Thomas.
