SAA Developing Lifelong Connections to MSM

Student-Alumni Association Student Alumni Association

The Student Alumni Association is made up of students from all programs represented on campus.

Affectionately known as SAA, the MSM Student-Alumni Association will be celebrating their second anniversary in November 2017. Less than two years after it was established, the SAA has grown from a modest three members organization to a current membership roster of twenty-two active students.

The organizations primary thrusts are:

  • Connect—Connect students with alumni to serve as mentors.
  • Engage—Provide professional development experiences with alumni and external stakeholders.
  • Invest—Introduce a culture of giving; giving of time and financial resources.

Members of the Student-Alumni Association have adopted two annual fundraising experiences. 1) Giving Tuesday and 2) INVEST 1975.

On November 29, 2016 more than 90 students gathered for lunch, fun and a successful giving experience. The Association raised $455. for student scholarships.

The organization is made up of students from all programs represented on campus. We welcome M.D., MPH, Ph.D., and M.S. students to join the MSM Student Alumni Association.

The Office of Alumni Engagement, which provides financial assistance to the Student-Alumni Association sees this as an opportunity to develop a lifelong connection to Morehouse School of Medicine.
