Each year, alumni support makes a significant impact through the
Clarke Fund; however, alumni participation is just as vital.
Alumni Participation = The percentage of active alumni donating to the institution on an annual basis.
Because the alumni participation rate is a visible and measurable indicator of alumni satisfaction with the University, it is used in a number of ways to determine everything from grant awards to national collegiate rankings.
A strong alumni participation rate creates more opportunities for Clarke to secure financial support from foundations and other sources as well as recruit and retain quality faculty and high-achieving students.
