Abstract

With the increase in challenges facing higher education in regards to balancing budgets while responding to decreasing enrollments, increasing tuitions, and decreasing external support, it is now, more than ever, important to increase alumni engagement. This correlational study uses Social Identity Theory to examine the relationship between undergraduate student involvement and subsequent alumni engagement at a small, private institution. Specifically, this study examines the factors that influence alumni monetary and alumni non-monetary engagement amongst alumni that graduated between 2005 and 2014.
