Austin Community College has hired MaryAnn Cicala as its new full-time director of alumni.
Cicala will develop and lead initiatives to connect with and support ACC’s vast international alumni network, while helping the college benefit from the experience and expertise they represent.
“We want to support our alumni and students in their professional endeavors while fostering lifelong connections to ACC,” says Cicala, who works within the college’s External Affairs office. “There are so many ways our alumni can make an impact and support our students.”
Cicala brings a wealth of experience to the position. Before relocating to Austin last fall, she served for 10 years as director of alumni relations at Emerson College, her alma mater.
Prior to Emerson, Cicala worked for the Cambridge Arts Council. She also taught business and organizational oral communications at the Harvard Extension School. She holds a bachelor’s degree in performing arts/theatre management and a master’s degree in communication management.
An Arizona native, Cicala enjoys traveling, bike-riding, and exploring Austin’s cultural and music scene.
Alumni Network Advisory Council
Among Cicala’s priorities is an Alumni Network Advisory Council representing various college programs and interests. Council members will help promote the college through various committees and activities. Visit the ACC Alumni Network webpage for information about the advisory council and other alumni initiatives.
