Brownsville native Marisa Campirano’s job at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is to help the university reconnect with its graduates. There are more of them than one might think.

“Counting our legacy institutions — and they’re the foundation that built UTRGV — we have 100,000 alums. The largest population is here in the Valley, but we have alums all over the place, across the country and all over the world,” Campirano said last week at her Brownsville office.

Campirano is the new executive director for alumni relations at UTRGV. She’s been in the job for a little more than one month but has worked in alumni relations at the University of Texas at Brownsville before it became part of UTRGV, and at Saint Joseph Academy.

UTRGV’s other legacy institution is the University of Texas Pan American in Edinburg, so Campirano splits her time between Brownsville and her office on the Edinburg campus. She lives in Brownsville.

She said one of her first jobs is finding out what the alums need and want.

“Just because you’ve graduated doesn’t mean there’s not a place for you here at the university,” she said, referring to opportunities for socializing and networking, as well as for professional development “in partnership with our career center.”
