The Alumni Section in the Department of Student Affairs at Dhofar University is working toward a future where Dhofar University alumni take pride in their University experience and pass that enthusiasm on to their children, prospective students and others. The purpose and function of Alumni Section is to foster cooperative support for the University among all alumni groups so that the synergy of these combined efforts assures Dhofar University of unfailing alumni support and the means by which to take its place among universities in Oman and the world. It is hoped that in the future, Dhofar University alumni will become prominent stakeholders, participating in key decisions at the very top levels of the University.
Dhofar University Alumni Section seeks to maintain a mutually beneficial, lifelong connection between DU and its alumni, parents and friends.
