Important Message from ACT

Dear Thunderbird Alumni, 

By now, you all have received the news that Thunderbird and Arizona State University (ASU) have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) whereby Thunderbird would join the collection of colleges, schools and institutes which constitute ASU.  The Alumni Council of Thunderbird (ACT) supports the strategic intent of the LOI. This partnership has great benefits to both universities, linked by compatible missions and values. 

Your ACT will continue to be an integral part of continued alumni communication and engagement and we look forward to working together with our new partner to advance the interests of all Thunderbird alumni, current and future, as we create the next chapter of Thunderbird’s history.  

Now more than ever, we call upon Thunderbird alumni to join together to ensure the long-term sustainability of Thunderbird’s mission, vision and values which represent the Thunderbird brand. 

As a point of interest, please see link ( from the  July 9th editorial published in The Arizona Republic, with a favorable reaction to the merger.


The Alumni Council of Thunderbird (ACT)
