We look back upon a challenging year, for our alma mater, as well as our Alumni Association. With recent changes and developments, we can look forward to the New Year with new confidence and strength.
Your newly elected representatives bring an impressive skill set and creative fresh energy to the existing Alumni Board. We used our first meeting in Berlin to align and push new and existing projects to have as much as possible to show for in 2015.

President - Jacobs University Alumni Association
Jacobs University is in financial peril. The place we called home - is fighting to clean up its books. There’s one bad apple that we (the Alumni) are to blame for. You guessed it - Tuition Postponement.
This series of articles, brought to you by the Alumni Consulting Initiative with support from the Alumni Board and in collaboration with the University itself, will give you the low down on all things around tuition postponement. The series starts with a detailed look at the numbers - where is all that money? How much is it? Well.. be prepared to have your mind expanded!
Dear fellow Alumni,
This September will mark several important milestones for the University as well as the Alumni Community. One important milestone is that four positions in the Alumni Board will become vacant: one Vice President position and three openings for Assessors with specialisations in PR and communication, event management, and special projects. In addition, we are going to appoint two Auditors who are not members of the Board but support the monitoring of any future income (e.g. scholarships).
Over the past year, the Board has worked very hard in establishing a work dynamic that would enable us to be a true partner in the development of the university. We have instituted regular meetings in cities where our board members live, developed a very lively and productive cooperation with the University administration, and tried to bring some of our own experience from our work environments into the Association.
We are very keen to continue this trend, and that’s why we need you! We are looking to fill these four positions with people who will bring energy, passion and dedication to the job but also not forget how to have fun. This is an amazing opportunity to learn and develop outside of your work while contributing to a greater cause and making a difference for the future.
