New director looks to bring alumni together

A community is made of many individuals who share common interests and goals—and together, make it feel like home.

According to Lynn’s new director of alumni affairs, Barbara C. Sageman, alumni have the same affinity—they are a far-stretching community with a common place to which they belong.

Sageman directs alumni programs, cultivates lifelong partnerships and assists with the President’s Alumni Advisory Council. Joining Lynn just six months ago, she already has a vision for alumni: building a community and leaving a legacy that lasts beyond graduation. One of her top priorities is to inspire the spirit that alumni share.

“You [alumni] have bragging rights: You won our 23 national championships, were the first generation of iPad users, started Knights of the Roundtable and are represented by the flags at our entrance. College is a big part of our lives, and there’s a tie to our alma mater that lasts a lifetime.”

Barbara Sageman

Sageman plans to connect alumni to the campus, offering mentorship and speaking opportunities.

Sageman has a passion for higher education, bringing people together and practicing the pay-it-forward mentality.

“The philosophy ‘you get what you give’ stands true. If we invest in the students of today, as others invested in us, we can impact generations to come and establish a culture that will make the future world a better place.”

Sageman joins Lynn with 16 years of higher education experience, serving in community relations, fundraising, career services, admission and development roles. She received master’s and bachelor’s degrees in business administration from Saginaw Valley State University.
