The 36th Reunion of Black Graduates will take place during U-M's Homecoming Weekend, October 11-14. The reunion provides time for fellowship and connection among African-American alumni and current students. A valuable component of the Reunion of Black Graduates is the Student/Alumni Exchange. The evening will include a mini-presentation on the art of networking, a few rounds of "speed networking" with U-M alumni, and a reception for students to fellowship and make connections that can prove valuable to their future academic and career goals.
