Message from the Executive Director


December 2019 


Lori Tuttle

Alumni and Friends,

We need your help!  Winthrop University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).  Winthrop will complete a reaffirmation process as part of the review Class of 2022. A hallmark of the SACSCOC reaffirmation process is the proposal and implementation of a Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP, which is a significant institutional project that focuses on student learning and is executed in the five years following one's reaffirmation. QEP proposals have several expectations, one of which is cross-campus community participation in the determination of the QEP's topic, or student learning focus. The university is seeking responses from alumni, faculty, staff and students to determine what the project should be. To participate in the project, please complete the brief two question survey.

As we close out 2019, the Alumni Association would like to thank all of our alumni who made our year successful.  We hosted 50 events this year with nearly 800 alumni in attendance.  We are already planning for 2020 events (see some of them below!)  and hope to see you at an event on campus or when we travel to your area.  From our Winthrop family to yours, have a happy and safe holiday season.  We’ll see you in 2020!
