From the Office of Alumni Relations 
Greetings Alumni,

My name is Kate Flatley and I am honored to be the new Director of Alumni Relations at Fontbonne University. I have been in the Advancement field for over 10 years, most recently serving in the Office of Alumni Relations at Saint Louis University. I am excited for the opportunity to share my knowledge, gain new experiences, and contribute to furthering Fontbonne’s mission. Since I started in August, the Fontbonne community has been nothing but welcoming and wonderful. I am looking forward to getting to know the community better and enhancing the alumni program. If you have any comments, suggestions or would like to introduce yourself, please feel free to contact me at or (314) 889-1447.

I hope you see you back on campus soon!
