CLASS NOTES: From the Director of Alumni RelationsBy: Ethan Rosenzweig 02L
Dear Fellow Alumni:
After three and a half fulfilling years in alumni relations, I have accepted Dean David F. Partlett’s offer to become the assistant dean for admission. Before I truly can fill my new role, I must thank everyone for the tremendous support given to our alumni relations efforts during my tenure.
Under the dean’s leadership, increasing alumni engagement has been a top priority as the administration moves Emory Law forward as a leader in student-centered legal education. By all measures, we have answered the dean’s call and succeeded in reconnecting alumni with their school.
A special thank you to the two Emory Law Alumni Association presidents with whom I have worked so closely—Judge Jackson Bedford 73L and Halli Cohn 90L. They have spent countless volunteer hours laying the groundwork for our reconstituted Emory Law Alumni Board. This leadership group is committed to providing meaningful programming for our alumni and students, and I look forward to witnessing its great results as the board flourishes as a leader among Emory’s alumni organizations.
Our work is producing positive results. Our alumni communities in New York, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta are prospering with a consistent Emory Law presence in networking opportunities, continuing legal education and social events. Visits to San Diego, San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, Miami, Chicago, Orlando, Fla., Jacksonville, Fla., Birmingham, Ala., and Savannah, Ga. allowed us to bring the Emory Law experience to so many graduates who have not returned to campus since graduation.
And, our partnerships with the greater Emory University Alumni Association allow all our alumni, regardless of location, to stay connected with Emory Law through our online e-communities, alumni chapters and e-mentoring opportunities.
All of us at Emory Law are committed to a seamless transition in the alumni relations office with a new director. And, with the strong staff in place throughout the Development, Alumni Relations and Marketing and Communications division, there will be no interruption in the services, programming and information our alumni expect from us.
I look forward to working with you in my new role in admission as well as seeing folks at alumni events soon. Only this time, I will be there as a participant!
As always, I am so proud to be a fellow alumnus with you. Please keep in touch.
