Launch of the UFV Connect Alumni Business Directory

Online directory seeks to support and promote alumni businesses feeling the pinch during challenging times

Our evolving reality continues to call for changes in how we do business and now, more than ever, we are seeking new ways to engage our alumni. With so many of us spending so much more time at home, the need for community support has never been greater. As such, UFV is excited to launch our new Business Directory to support to alumni businesses during these challenging times. UFV Connect gives users an exclusive space within our engaged network of over 42,000 alumni to promote their businesses and services, both in the Fraser Valley and beyond.

UFV Connect is an online repository of UFV alumni-owned businesses, administered by the UFV Alumni Relations Office, to connect and promote businesses among the alumni population. A free-to-use user-friendly platform where alumni may list, promote and incentivise their business offerings to other UFV alumni, supporting each other both locally and beyond. The first part of a wider engagement strategy, more exciting features will be rolling out over the next year. Stay tuned!
