Become an Assumption Alumni Ambassador!
One of Assumption’s greatest assets is its alumni. The Assumption University Alumni Ambassadors is a group committed to Assumption, who are proud of Assumption and fellow Assumption alumni, and who want to get involved in ways to contribute to the ongoing success of the University.
Keep up with what’s going on at Assumption University! The Alumni e-newsletter contains information about alumni and campus events as well as unique opportunities for members of the Assumption community.
The Alumni in Residence program brings a distinguished alumna/us back to campus for a day to share their post-graduation experiences with the Assumption University community. The selected alumna/us interacts with groups of students and faculty to talk about their field of expertise, their career path, the value of networking, and current trends in the workplace. Later that day, the alumna/us delivers the keynote address at the annual Career Networking Event.

While on campus, Nick was interviewed by members of the Student Government Association (SGA) executive board.

The inaugural 2017 Alumni in Residence program featured Candace McGovern Race ‘78, Executive Vice President, Marketing, Fidelity Institutional Asset Management. McGovern Raceshared that she benefits from a liberal arts education every day, both personally and professionally. “Assumption prepared me to generally learn that there sometimes isn’t a right answer and that there isn’t always an easy answer, and that no two people always think the same way about how you get to an answer. And I love that process, and that set me up for a very productive and very positive role in the corporate side of financial services. The people I look to hire, and folks I work with - many, many of them are from liberal arts programs. The ability to communicate, to think, and to articulate really adds such dimension to what every technical specialty you are going to develop.”
While on campus, Candace was interviewed by Bryan Coleman ‘09, Visiting Assistant Professor of Accounting. The full interview can be accessed below.
