Clarkson University Online Alumni Community Honored

Clarkson University’s online alumni community was recently honored by Harris Connect at its annual users conference.

Harris presented Clarkson University with the 2009 highest registration rate award for sites launched less than one year ago. Among all new sites, Clarkson had the highest percentage of alumni registrations.

Clarkson was also mentioned as part of the best in show presentation for its alumni e-mail newsletter and its regional chapter Web pages. Harris Connect annually dedicates a portion of their conference to recognizing the best in show and does a presentation on the creative ways in which their clients are using the tools provided.

"With almost 400 online communities launched, it is a point of pride that Clarkson was not only mentioned as part of the best in show, but also received the registration rate award," said Stephen Newkofsky, Clarkson’s associate vice president for alumni relations.

Harris Connect publishes over 600 alumni directories annually, provides Internet services to close to 400 leading educational institutions and membership organizations and delivers research and modeling solutions to over 1,000 clients.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in six alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
