There’s no place like Homecoming for graduates who want to reconnect with their alma mater. The College of Health Professions Alumni Council knows a way to make it an even more meaningful event: spend some time with students.

The Council is looking for alumni to visit CHP classes during Alumni Week Feb. 21 – Feb. 25, 2005. (Homecoming is Feb. 26.) Volunteers can lecture on a topic of their choice or one suggested by an instructor. They also have the option to just visit and talk about their work.

“This is the third year we’ve invited alumni to visit classes,” says Nancy Dillon, Alumni Council president. “It’s so important for students to feel a connection with people in the careers they’re preparing for. As an alumnus, you get a renewed energy talking to young people who are getting ready to enter your world.”

For more information or to volunteer, contact Dillon at nadmsn@aol.com, or Yvonne King, administrative assistant to the dean, at (313) 993-1208.

Council seeks candidates for alumni awards
The College of Health Professions Alumni Council is looking for nominees for the Alumni of the Year Awards. The awards are presented at the spring Honors Convocation to outstanding graduates from each of these programs: heath services administration/management, nurse anesthesia, nursing physician assistant and allied health.

“It’s important to recognize the work our graduates are doing out in the community. It promotes the values our education has infused in us,” says Nancy Dillon, Alumni Council president.

Nominations may be made by completing the online form on the Health Professions web site or by writing to Dillon at nadmsn@aol.com or in care of the College of Health Professions, 4001 W. McNichols, PO Box 19900, Detroit, MI 48219-0900. Nominations also may be faxed to (313) 993-1160.
