Once a Seahawk, Always a Seahawk

The Office of Alumni, Parent and Family Programs works closely with these constituencies to increase participation in University activities, giving and support. From the early tradition of volunteer participation by alumni and parents, the office today engages hundreds of volunteers in service to the University through many avenues of programming, service and giving. The office supports the University mission, purpose, vision, values and strategic direction, and embodies the belief that alumni, parents and families are key components in the continued success of Salve Regina as a leading institution of higher education.

Alumni Spotlight: Akeia Bowman de Barros Gomes '00

 As students, there’s always a path that we expect to follow: take courses in correspondence with a major; graduate with a specific degree; and find a job within that same field. But for Akeia Bowman de Barros Gomes ’00, her education and degree brought her through many fields, and she’s had the opportunity to bring her values and knowledge from her time at Salve Regina through these fields too.
