New VU Online Community Launches

Posted By Vanderbilt Magazine On August 5, 2009 @ 2:52 pm In Alumni Association News, Summer 2009 | 1 Comment

VUconnect-general-ad [1]Vanderbilt has launched VUconnect, a new online community for alumni and students. Replacing Dore2Dore, VUconnect includes new and expanded features to help get you connected more easily across the country and around the world.

With VUconnect, you can share your latest news, find old friends and classmates, build networking relationships, get and share career help, obtain an “@alumni” Vanderbilt e-mail forwarding address, locate a Vanderbilt Chapter, and sign up for Vanderbilt events.

Registering for VUconnect is easy. You’ll create your user ID and password using a four-digit VUconnect code. If Vanderbilt has your e-mail address on file, you should have received this code in June via e-mail. To get started, go to www.vuconnect.com and click “First time here?” Your code will help you create a password; it is not your password. If you need help, contact the VUconnect Help Desk at 615/322-5578 (8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. Central time) or vuconnect@vanderbilt.edu.

Registered Dore2Dore users will need to create a new user ID and password for VUconnect. The user name and password you had for Dore2Dore will not automatically register you for VUconnect, and Dore2Dore is no longer active. Biographical information from Dore2Dore has been transferred automatically to VUconnect with the exception of Career Advisor profiles, as VUconnect includes a new, improved system for this resource. Alumni with an “@alumni.vanderbilt.edu” e-mail address will continue to have e-mail forwarding service.

Users of OwenConnect, the online community of Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management, also will need to register for VUconnect to gain access to this comprehensive community system.

Vanderbilt is committed to the privacy of its alumni, and registration for VUconnect is only open to Vanderbilt alumni and students.

Go to www.vuconnect.com [1] today to join—and stay in touch with Vanderbilt no matter where you are.
