Dear CAST – UTech, Ja Alumni,

If you don’t mind, please take a few quick minutes to share your latest contact details with us. Our current database is comprised of exports from our University’s student database, done annually in your graduation year. This means with our mobile and global lives, the information we have on you would have changed quite a bit since our University first captured it, in your first year with us.

Our current alumni email database is also very simple, yet functional, in enabling us to share updates with you. However, it does not give us a comprehensive view of you beyond your name and email.

While we hope one day to be able to afford to have a robust alumni database, as this would enable us to properly capture both your history with us, and also  who you have become today as professionals & retirees, we think this simple and ongoing Alumni Contact Update Exercise is a good middle ground. So we hope you will agree and choose to participate.

As you may know, since 2014, we have been gently reaching out and inviting alumni to share their contact details with us. Over 300 CAST-UTech, Ja Alumni located worldwide have happily responded since then. However, over 60,000 alumni have graduated from our noble institution to date. We don’t want to miss out on connecting with you as well.

So please CLICK the link below to share your most current information with us. Of course, if you would take a moment to also share this blog link with your Alumni colleagues, we’d greatly appreciate that as well. Always happy to connect with a graduate of CAST – UTech, Jamaica!

Yes, I Want to Stay in Touch With UTech, Jamaica!

 

Thanks for your continued support of UTech, Jamaica.

We Appreciate You!
