Note from the Director

Welcome Home, Spartan Nation!

On behalf of the University of Dubuque Alumni Association, I want to say “welcome home.” As an alumna of UD, I want you to know that it is an honor to be working for you, my fellow alumni.

This is Spartan Nation, online! This site is designed to keep you informed of alumni news and events, and is a great way for you to keep in touch with your alma mater and Spartan Alumni family that extends across the nation and around the globe. We are excited to share the latest University of Dubuque happenings, and provide a place for our valued alums to stay connected, no matter where you are. As an alumnus/alumna, you became part of a network of professionals and friends who support one another though life’s journey.

The University of Dubuque strives to stay connected with our alumni and friends by sponsoring a variety of events to bring Spartans together on campus, across the country, and around the world. Our purpose is to stay connected with you, wherever you may be, and to provide the opportunity for alums to gather, express their pride, gratitude, and Spartan Spirit.  

There are several ways to stay connected:  
  • Check the calendar of events periodically to see if there are any events in your area.
  • Follow the University of Dubuque Alumni Association on Facebook and Twitter. 
  • Visit Campus! Give me a call to schedule a tour of our ever changing campus home.
  • Update your information and notify us of a big event, such as a marriage, the birth of a child, or a new job. Fill out and submit the electronic form.

I look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to your campus home! 

Go Spartans!
