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!

Luci Light Model Available from Alumni Relations Office, UTech, Jamaica

 

 

WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING?

The University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech, Jamaica) continues to facilitate national and regional development in the context of a weak Jamaican economy; the ongoing reduction in the government’s subvention to the tertiary sector; and the resulting reduction in student enrolment and income from tuition. Consequently, the Alumni Relations Office (ARO) is fundraising to support the ongoing development of our UTech, Jamaica by increasing our financial capacity to:

  • Support the Personal, Professional and Business Development of our alumni through the provision of relevant, good and services, inclusive of value adding content, through workshops, networking events, and social events
  • Support the Student Welfare Fund established to offset the tuition, meals, boarding, transportation, and book expenses of financially challenged students
  • Sponsor student events and promote a culture of investment in the University and its student body, within the mindset of our student population, prior to their graduation
  • Appropriately resource the ARO in order to improve its human resource and administrative capacity to provide excellent customer service to its Alumni and student customers. A major need is to know our Alumni well, in order to support them in their professional, business and community pursuits, with the support of an appropriate Alumni Database. An Alumni Database would host complete contact records of our Alumni, noting relevant details of their student life through to their employment status, current professional, business and community interests and achievements.

The Luci Light Fundraiser is one of several fundraising initiatives to be facilitated by the Alumni Relations Office over time in support of UTech, Jamaica

Congratulations Class of 2015

The Alumni Relations Office extends heartfelt congratulations to all of our graduates on the successful completion of your studies with us. We hope the following words and sentiments expressed in Edgar Albert Guest’s poem “It Couldn’t Be Done” will serve to inspire you to complete your life and career goals and achieve the quality life you desire and deserve.

It Couldn’t Be Done

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That ‘maybe it couldn’t,’ but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it! 

Somebody scoffed: ‘Oh, you’ll never do that; 
At least no one ever has done it; ‘
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure,
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it; 
Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing
That ‘cannot be done,’ and you’ll do it.

About the Alumni Relations Office

The Alumni Relations Office of the University of Technology, Jamaica (ARO) is a unit within the organizational structure of the University. You are an Alumnus (male), or Alumna (female), or member of the Alumni Community, based on the fact that you are a past student of our University. The aim of the Alumni Relations Office is to foster a good relationship between the University and all its past students.  We do this through programmes and services designed to:

  • Connect alumni with each other for networking benefits in favour of their ongoing personal, professional and business development
  • Connect alumni to the University to ensure that UTech remains a leader in national and regional development, with the assistance of alumni donations, volunteerism and advocacy
  • Connect alumni to the current student body, in order that our students can continue to be inspired by the achievements of graduates who too have experienced student life and have triumphed personally, professionally and academically

Our Alumni Stakeholders
Our past students connect with us in several ways, such as:

  •  As private citizens not attached to any Alumni Affiliate Group, but who wish to support the University or who want information e.g. transcripts, statements, how to establish scholarships, or event details
  • As Affiliate Alumni Groups which operate independently of the University, with their own executive and/or elected governing body, and membership fees, and which offer programmes, services, and events, to support the interests of their own members as well as the interests of UTech, Jamaica. These include:
    • The Alumni Association, UTech
    • The New York Metro Alumni Chapter
    • The CAST-UTech Alumni Chapter of South Florida
    • The Pharmacy Alumni Group
    • The Caribbean School of Architecture Alumni Group


Benefits of Maintaining Contact with UTech, Ja via the Alumni Relations Office

We serve past students and current students through the following methods and opportunities:

  • Email and Social Media updates on relevant alumni &/or UTech news, events or other information
  • Personal & Professional development workshops
  • Sharing Job Searching & Career Management Information
  • Career Consultations
  • Networking events
  • Social events
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Referrals to job opportunities
  • Networking for jobs, projects & re-location
  • Research on University matters

Some services may attract a modest fee, which enables the Office to respond to the needs expressed by our students who face financial challenges as they too seek to complete their studies at UTech, Ja. In addition, we are called upon to support Alumni who may have urgent negative circumstances e.g. Needing a medical procedure.

University of Technology, Jamaica

Communiqué to the University Community

on Changes to 2015 Graduation Ceremonies

The University Community is advised that the Academic Board at its meeting held on August 20, 2015 took the decision to convene one Graduation Ceremony for students graduating from both the Kingston and Western campuses.  The University will therefore no longer host a Graduation Ceremony in western Jamaica.  In addition, the annual Graduation Ceremony will be held on a Thursday, and no longer on Saturdays.

In keeping with the foregoing, the 2015 Congregation for the Presentation of Graduates will be held on Thursday, November 12, 2015 and will commence at 11:00 am at the National Arena in Kingston.  Graduands from the Kingston and Western campuses will be required to assemble at the National Arena at 8:00 a.m. in the designated area in preparation for the procession of the Graduating Class of 2015.

Graduands and the wider University Community will be further advised of the dates for registration and other matters relating to graduation.
