Welcome to The Office of Alumni Relations

The Office of Alumni Relations is home to the UMES National Alumni Association and its 11,000+ members. Our alums live in all 50 United States, as well as more than a dozen of U.S. Territories and foreign countries.

This is the place where you will find news, services, and events for all UMES Alums.  The Office of Alumni Relations exists to keep all past and future graduates connected to one another and the University, as well as to their respective college/program. Alumni Relations promotes dozens of events to alumni each year, including reunions, on-campus lectures, receptions at professional conferences and regional social events.

Communication with alumni is primarily done via email, and alumni can expect to receive in their UMES Constant Contact updates, periodic messages from the president and various event announcements. 

If you are an alumnus, we welcome and encourage you to be a part of the HAWK family. Plan to visit the campus, HAWK Territory, well stop by the Office in the Alumni Relations in the Student Services Center and learn more about the resources available to you as alums! 


It is the vision of the Office of Alumni Relations to develop relationships and establishes lifelong connections between the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and its alumni and friends, leading to increased support for the institution’s mission and goals. The Office of Alumni Relations promotes a spirit of unity and allegiance among graduates, former students, and friends locally and globally.


The mission of the Office of Alumni Relations is to actively engage all alumni within the life of the University through consistent communication and meaningful programs while supporting the philanthropic interests of the University’s alumni.


The three primary themes that will guide the actions of the Office of Alumni Relations will be “Opportunity, Distinction and Investment!”
