Activities carried out by the Alumni Association of Uttarakhand Open University:
The Alumni Association of Uttarakhand Open University is a registered organization. It is the first Alumni Association of any Open University of the country to be registered under the Societies Registration Act of India 1860. In a short time span it has organized two Alumni meets. These meets have been important platforms for exchange of ideas and forging bonds among the alumni of the University. During the meets and elsewise also the alumni interact with each other and mutually facilitate each other at various levels. Some of the Alumni of Uttarakhand Open University have made the University proud through their achievements. Soni, an ex-student of MSW, has made the University proud by successfully completing her Ph.D. from Germany. Likewise, Namami Bansal, an ex-student of Uttarakhand Open University too earned laurels for the University by qualifying for the prestigious Indian Administrative Services. Such students who have carved a niche for themselves in their respective fields continue to mentor their fellow alumni and other students of Uttarakhand Open University and continue to inspire them.
The University keeps getting feedback from its alumni from time to time and the valuable feedback given to us by our Alumni helps us in making efforts for developing the University further. Our Alumni make use of various platforms such as our community radio Hello Haldwani to reach out to other students and fellow alumni to mentor and counsel them.
