Uni Sydney asks now to receive later

It has questions for alumni and friends

Learned readers report receiving an eight page “alumni and supporter census” in the mail (as in Australia Post) from the university.

It starts with instructions on how to complete and continues in a tone that suggests to some recipients there is more in this for the university than them.

As well as basics on age, location and graduation there are questions about being a business owner/ board director, household income, community engagement and attitude to philanthropy.  Of which Uni Sydney knows a bit about – the “Inspired” campaign cracked $1bn in 2019 (CMM January 30 2019).
