Alumni and Parent Relations James (Jim) Jacobs joined the Advance- ment staff as director of alumni and parent relations in September. He brings over two decades of experience in alumni relations, volunteer management and engagement. Jacobs most recently worked at Occidental College, where he was director of the alumni association. Prior to that, he worked in alumni relations at

the University of Chicago, Princeton University and Claremont McKenna College. “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to return to Claremont

as a member of the HMC Office of College Advancement,” said Jacobs, a Northwestern University graduate, who earned an advanced degree from the University of Wisconsin. “This is an exciting time for the College, and I’m very enthusiastic about having the chance to work with so many dedicated volunteers and loyal alumni and parents, whom I look forward to meeting.” Jacobs joins the alumni and parent relations team, which

works on programming and engagement opportunities for parents and alumni: Jennifer Green, associate director of alumni relations, Angie Pfeiffer, assistant director of parent relations, and Joanna Callahan, coordinator. Jacobs said, “I encourage alumni and parents to contact me

with any thoughts and ideas about how the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations can be of service.”
