Welcome from the Alumni Director

Paula RoaDear Alumni and Friends,

It gives me great pleasure to serve as the Director of Alumni Affairs at Southern Illinois University School of Law.  When I first visited SIU Law in 2011, I was immediately struck by the nurturing warmth of the environment and the family atmosphere. The lifelong friendships formed at SIU significantly influenced my life. As a law student, I was passionate about this institution and will continue to carry that enthusiasm and hope to continue the tradition of excellence set before me.

In an effort to strengthen the SIU law alumni family and legal community, the SIU Law Office of Alumni Affairs will cultivate, steward, and nurture lifelong relationships between the law school and our alumni community. I want you to be confident that the Office of Alumni Relations is here for you. We are going to keep you informed of all alumni and faculty news, law school activities, events, as well as topics of interest. In addition, we will help you connect with other alumni, provide you with opportunities for professional growth and networking, and make sure that you are always incredibly proud of your alma mater. 

Good ideas come from everyone, so please send any thoughts and news you would like to share. We would love to feature it in an upcoming SIU Law Alumni e-newsletter. Again, I am greatly honored to serve my alma mater and my fellow Saluki alumni.

If you would like to update your information or need to reach me, please do not hesitate to contact me at 618-453-8768 or proa@siu.edu.

With warm regards,

Paula A. Roa
