The 2nd Annual Bobcat Networking Event - Benefiting The Joe Burrow Foundation and the Society of Alumni and Friends.
The Joe Burrow Foundation launched in October 2022, in parallel with The Society of Alumni & Friends Annual Event planning discussion.
The question quickly arose: How can the two organizations work together to engage Cincinnati region residents in a way never seen before, to benefit those we serve?
The answer? Mission alignment.
SAF Mission: “Empowering opportunities by connecting ambitious students to passionate Bobcat alumni”
The Joe Burrow Foundation Mission: “To provide resources and support to the underprivileged and underserved.”
The Bobcat Networking Celebration
In late 2021, as events returned to normalcy, The Society of Alumni & Friends, in partnership with the Ohio University College of Business Leadership & Faculty, outlined a five-year strategic plan to create a monumental networking event in major markets to power our mission of empowering opportunities by connecting Bobcat students & alumni.
The First Annual Bobcat Networking Celebration: 2021
The First Annual Bobcat Networking Celebration was held in April 2021 at the beautiful Muirfield Village Golf Club. This event featured networking, student speakers, and an Executive Bobcat Alumni Panel.
