African American Alumni Gathering
April 5 – 7, 2013
A group of African American alumni, with the support of the Office of Alumni Relations, is working to lay the foundation for a future reunion program for all black alumni. This alumni led effort began last fall. We hope that you will join us, as participation from the alumni community is vital.
2013 marks the 35th Annual Alden J. (“Butch”) Carpenter Scholarship Banquet. The alumni planning group has chosen to use this weekend and this milestone anniversary as a time to launch planning for this new reunion program. This will be a wonderful time to reconnect on a social basis, but also a time to organize and plan for the future.
Weekend highlights include:
- Friday welcome reception for alumni & current students
- Saturday morning planning sessions
- Saturday evening Butch Carpenter Banquet
To be held (this year only) at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in downtown Detroit)
- Sunday Farewell Brunch
- Tours of the Law School’s new buildings – South Hall and the Aikens Commons
This is an important step for Michigan Law and its black alumni community. Whatever your experience may have been in law school, I am sure you feel, as I do, that our law school experience and education were important and formative components of our careers. I believe the time has come to return home and celebrate that experience with each other.
