Lasting & Meaningful Connections

Maumee Valley alumni have always served a crucial role in sustaining the school’s reputation and ongoing excellence. Their involvement and contributions significantly impact the overall experience for current students. By fostering strong connections with alumni, Maumee Valley can leverage the collective expertise, resources, and loyalty of their graduates to create a more enriching and sustainable educational environment. Here’s how MV alumni are making a difference today:

  • Mentorship and networking: Sharing your valuable professional networks and experiences. Alumni can serve as mentors to current students, offering guidance on career paths, internships, and job opportunities.
  • Guest lectures and workshops: Speaking or conducting workshops at the school to expose students to real-world experiences and insights. This helps bridge the gap between academic learning and practical application.
  • Recruitment assistance: Assisting with the school’s admissions efforts by representing the institution at college fairs, outreach events, or through personal recommendations. Your success stories are powerful tools for attracting new students.
  • Facilitating internship opportunities: Provide internship opportunities for current students within various industries. This practical experience is valuable for students’ personal and professional development.
  • Reunion events: Organizing reunion events strengthen the sense of community. These events often lead to increased engagement and support for the school.
  • Financial contributions and philanthropic initiatives: Donations provide much-needed financial support by funding scholarships, infrastructure improvements, technology upgrades, and other initiatives that enhance the overall educational environment. Alumni also champion philanthropic initiatives, encouraging peers to contribute to specific causes or projects. These efforts have a substantial impact on our ability to pursue ambitious goals.
  • Feedback and advocacy: Provide valuable feedback on your experiences, helping us identify areas for improvement.

No. MVCDS Connect does not replace our social media channels and, in fact, it actually pulls MV’s Facebook and Twitter feeds into the site. It’s different from social media because it enables you to find, search, and connect with the Maumee Valley alumni network quickly and easily.

You will find the entire Maumee Valley alumni community at your fingertips; all alumni for whom we have an email address will be invited to join. If you know a Maumee Valley alumnus who is not active on MVCDS Connect, please encourage them to join.

The platform is a closed network accessible only by individuals pre-approved by MV’s Office of Alumni Relations. Please be aware that information you share will be viewable by everyone on the platform and Maumee Valley has no control over how members of the site may use the information.

For now, you can access it on your desktop or download the app. 

Register here by creating a username and password (we suggest registering through LinkedIn as it is the quickest and easiest). Follow the step-by-step instructions to add the relevant information. If you happen to register with an email address that we do not have in our records, we will need to approve your request to join manually (which we will do, just bear with us). Once you are registered, post a message to say hello and introduce yourself, upload photos, browse to find people you know, and invite other alumni by using the “invite alumni” arrow on the upper right-hand side of your screen.

Please email if you can’t find your college or university listed so that we may add it to the list.

Log in and click on profile and update your profile. If you still have questions, please contact so we can help you troubleshoot.

If you’ve forgotten your password, use the “forgotten your password” link to reset the password. If you are sure you have the right username and password, then possibly you’ve changed the email address that the system is linked to. If you change your email address in your profile, it might affect your login details. Contact for assistance.

As with all electronic systems, this does sometimes happen. If you experience an error message, email to get immediate assistance.
