Alumni Engagement


Coppin State University alumni are represented in nearly every industry. Eagles are soaring in public service, nursing, education, science and technology, journalism, and business. Your connection to this network of leaders extends beyond graduation. We invite you to stay involved with the Coppin alumni community. Reconnect with old friends. Build new relationships. Inspire current and future Coppin students.

The Alumni Engagement team creates meaningful experiences that promote lifelong learning and relationships, personal and professional growth, and service to the community. We encourage you to consider making an investment to support your alma mater. We celebrate you as you excel in your career, and we thank you for serving as an advocate for Coppin State University.

Kind regards,
