Dear Alumni, and Members of the growing ISU Family !
It is my pleasure to invite you for the 2013 Alumni Conference, hosted this year at ISU central campus in Strasbourg.
The purpose of the Alumni Conference is to bring a large number of alumni together for a mixture of informative and fun activities. The keyword here is networking, ISU’s major strength. Over the course of the weekend you will meet alumni from all four of ISU’s core programs: The Space Studies Program, Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program, Masters, and Executive MBA. It is not important which ISU program you attended, as alumni you have a shared interest in interdisciplinary education and, most of all, you all share the dream of the Final Frontier!
Recently ISU has made considerable effort finding contact data for all of our “missing” alumni, to ensure we’re reaching as many of you as possible. We therefore hope to see more of you during this weekend than ever before!
Staying in touch is an essential part of the ISU experience, maybe even more than the formal educational. In order to frame this well, the organizing committee is composing a very interesting program with talks by distinguished alumni but also a number of cultural events. On the Alumni Conference website you will find a detailed overview of this very diverse program.
This year we are experimenting with some new ideas including a poster session and career fair. We will contact some organizations looking for new staff to advertise their job opportunities here at ISU. We felt that with the tough job market this might present a unique opportunity for alumni either looking for their first job or a change of career. The companies participating are fully aware of the unique character and skillsets of our alumni and therefore we hope that such direct contact will prove to be useful .
Looking forward to welcome you to ISU Strasbourg!
The 2013 Alumni Conference and Reunion will take place during SSP13 in ISU Central Campus, located in Strasbourg, France on August 2-4, 2013.
