An Update for ISB Alumni Visitors:

As of January 2018, with new security protocols in place on campus, we strongly encourage all returning alumni to let the Alumni Office know the time and date of your visit. This way, we can add you to the visitor log and security will expect you. Unannounced visits are, of course, still possible, but please be aware that visitors who arrive without an appointment will be granted entry onto campus only once their identity as a member of the ISB alumni community can be confirmed.

Thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing you!

Applying Best Practice in Education to Alumni Engagement

Director Lee Fertig speaks about making meaningful' connection and the best approach to alumni engagement. We can take a lesson from what we know about pedagogy and learning in general - especially here at ISB. That is, a one-size-fits-all model simply doesn't work and, instead, we need to differentiate our approach with the understanding that each former ISBer is unique and approaches the connection with the school in very personal ways.
