Throughout its long history, Woodbury has produced alumni who have done extraordinary things. Woodbury graduates have founded and built businesses, led national publications, become notable fashion designers, won design competitions, held public office, directed nonprofit organizations, and much more.
Beginning spring 2019, Educational Effectiveness, under advisement from university faculty and staff, will be leading an effort to coalesce around a common collective identity across our four schools, Student Affairs, and the Library. This includes describing, promoting, and tracking the hallmarks of a Woodbury University graduate.
We will answer the questions, “Who are we?” and “How do we know that?” We will talk with students, alumni, faculty, program chairs, staff, leadership, the BOT, and selected external partners about how WU “transforms students into innovative professionals who will contribute responsibly to the global community.”
What we learn as a result of this project will inform our internal processes and practices and the public. Our goals for the project are:
We will initiate a system/process for tracking the university’s performance as it relates to the hallmarks of WU graduates.
The Advisory Council to this project comprises a member from:

University Advancement’s Alumni Relations office has taken the first step to strengthen those connections with a data verification project and creation of a new alumni directory. This directory will help alumni connect with each other and Woodbury.
All graduates of Woodbury University are automatically enrolled into the Alumni Association.
Sammy Sucu (MBA Class of 2014) recently returned to the School of Business to give a virtual Entrepreneur Lecture to Woodbury students and faculty. Sammy is the Founder of DREAM Clothing (https://dreamclothinghq.com/) and a mental health advocate. Sammy founded DREAM Clothing to provide a place for those like him to feel heard and seen. His belief that the trials and tribulations of the mental health fight could be displayed through approachable garments has led to over $500,000 in donations to various mental health organizations. During his lecture, Sammy shared his entrepreneurial journey and what led to him starting his current business. He also shared lessons he learned along the way and gave those in attendance important advice for starting their own business.
