I lead a small and mighty team that reconnects and engages with Innis’s alumni and friends. We create opportunities that bring our community — local and global — into the vibrant college experience. And it works both ways. Our students are constantly inspired and enriched by our diverse, supportive alumni. Whether we’re hosting public events in Town Hall, connecting expert alumni with eager students, reminiscing about the good old days, or raising money to advance the College’s goals — the Alumni Office’s doors are always open! Reach out.

Shayla Anderson

Events and Mentorship Coordinator

I coordinate Innis’s many, diverse events and alumni volunteer opportunities. Working closely with our Office of Student Life, I help bring together Innis alumni and students to foster meaningful, mentoring connections. I myself am a recent graduate of the College and its Urban Studies Program. So, maintaining my personal connection — and creating opportunities for fellow alumni and friends to strengthen theirs — is especially rewarding!

Communications Officer

As Innis’s communications officer, I wear lots of hats. I help inform our students, alumni, and friends about what’s happening at Innis through magazines, newsletters, invitations, and social media. A proud alum of the College myself, I get most excited about rediscovering and sharing tales of Innis’s quirky and creative past. And when I’m not filling your mailboxes and feeds, I coordinate Innis College Council (ICC) as its secretary. Curious about volunteering in college governance? Reach out to me.

Don’t miss a thing!
