Giving Back to your Alma Mater

Our Ref: 2016/37  

Dear All

Re: Giving Back to your Alma Mater

The University of the South Pacific has over 45,000 alumni spread around the Pacific region and beyond. The University is proud of its alumni who do acknowledge that being a graduate of the University is something they are also proud of. Our graduates occupy key positions in their respective countries, region and globally and the University recognizes and greatly appreciates the work you all are doing and maintaining the reputation of the University. I am also thankful to those Alumni to do contribute back to the University to assist in its future development.

The University’s 2013-2018 Strategic Plan places emphasis on strengthening Alumni relations to ensure that the Alumni remain connected with the University. In 2010, the University for the first time established an Alumni Unit as part of the Development, Marketing and Communications Section of the Vice Chancellor’s Office. Much work has been done since then as we now have an Alumni Strategy based on which we have annual plans. A number of key initiatives such as hosting Alumni events in member countries and in Australia and New Zealand, creation of Alumni Website, Alumni e-Newsletter and a database of all our Alumni have been done. We also have an active campaign of registering all our Alumni, issuing them with Alumni card which will entitle you to access benefits that the University is offering. The list of benefits will be expanded as we negotiate Alumni benefits from private sector as well. For example, we have recently signed a MoU with Avis Rental Cars, which provides discounts to Alumni who are registered with us. We will also be negotiating with our national airline for possible Alumni discounted fares etc. So the list of benefits which are listed in the Alumni website will be added with more benefits as we progress.

We intend to be in regular touch with our alumni, and hope that you will always feel a part of the University community. With this in mind, we are encouraging all our Alumni to log into Alumni web page http://www.usp.ac.fj/alumni  and register as an Alumnus of the University if you have not registered yet, and provide your updated profile with highlights that appear in the Alumni e-Newsletter. Those who have registered and haven’t received the Alumni card should immediately contact our Alumni Officer on email irene.miller(at)usp.ac.fj or Manager Marketing on email jenies.mudiliar(at)usp.ac.fj 

Giving back to your University  

For the last 47 years, the University has not requested its Alumni for any donations or monies toward creating an Alumni Fund that can be used for enhancing and upgrading educational offerings and projects. As you may be aware many universities embark on fund raising activities through their Alumni on an annual basis. The University of the South Pacific is approaching its 50th anniversary in 2018, with our mission to become an “excellent” University. During the celebration of this milestone we want to put our Alumni in the forefront of celebrations. We are therefore seeking your support in contributing towards the annual Alumni Fund.

The University is humble seeking your generous donations towards it Alumni Fund. There is no limit to your donations. However, the University would be most grateful if you can consider donating at least $100 now and $50 annually thereafter. The University will acknowledge the contribution appropriately and will ensure that it is managed effectively for the purpose for which the Alumni Fund is established. We encourage our established Alumni who have become successful in business, profession, or leaders of their countries, communities make special donations, which can be made on the following link: https://www.usp.ac.fj/onlinepayment  or to the following Bank account with “Alumni Fund” in the narrative:

Main Account #:9801283301
Bank:Westpac Banking Corporation
Address:Suva Branch1 Thomson Street Suva FIJI

By making regular donations, you will enable us to continue to improve the thriving institution that USP is today and will have the Alumni play a central role during our 50th anniversary in 2018. 

Best wishes and I look forward to your generous contribution. 

Yours sincerely,

Professor Rajesh Chandra
