As part of the development of Alumni relations, the corporate development department organizes an annual lunch of Alumni Ambassadors with the top management of the university.
This time the lunch took place in Vista restaurant, Hotel Ritz Carlton Almaty. 14 Alumni from different years and programs attended the gathering. KIMEP University was represented by Dr. Timothy Barnett, Provost and General Deputy to the President, and the Deans. Dr. Barnett welcomed all attendees and thanked them for support to KIMEP and briefed them on KIMEP major accomplishments, last news and achievements: upcoming accreditation by an international agency, the opening of new programs, hiring new faculty, reconstruction of the campus. Raushan Kanayeva, Director of corporate development department presented the 8th issue of Alumni Magazine, invited Alumni to the forthcoming events: the celebration of Nauryz (April 20), the Graduation ceremony (May 18), the annual Alumni reunion (May 24).
Lunch with Alumni Ambassadors in a family-like friendly atmosphere is KIMEP’s unbroken tradition: University administrators communicated with alumni, alumni shared interesting news. KIMEP always appreciates opinions, recommendations, feedback from our Alumni. Madi Aitimov (G2008) suggested to shoot a movie for KIMEP 30th Anniversary, offered ideas for KIMEP Alumni Association Instagram account. Assiya Yermukhametova (G2011) in collaboration with Gulmara Rysbekova (G2006) initiated a monthly stipend for a needy student from BCB with GPA 4.0. Kamila Lukpanova (G2009/2011) proposed to convene a focus group among alumni regarding KIMEP marketing promotion campaign.
After lunch and the photo shooting our Alumni Ambassadors received the 8th edition of Alumni Magazine and assured that they were happy to meet each other, as KIMEP is not only about the best education, it is more about friendship, networking and cooperation. Giving back to Alma Mater is not only about remembering your University , it is more about helping young people to gain a valuable asset that determines their lives and career paths.
