Welcome to your Alumni Community!
Alumni play a very important role in the University's success. As alumni, you have the power to transform the lives of others by sharing what you have learned along the way. A major aim of the alumni association is to ensure that CDU continues to be an educational, support, and networking resource for the rest of your life. We hope that you will keep us apprised of your accomplishments and important milestones, and allow your CDU family to celebrate them with you. We also hope that you will keep us updated as you move from place to place.
The alumni online community is one way to stay connected with other alumni and to stay informed of the latest news about CDU.
Feel free to visit the campus whenever you can. We'd love to see you!
