What is an Encore Event?

Encore events allow Cedarville University to continue to invest in our alumni. When you attend one of these informative events, you receive an “encore performance” of the excellence you experienced as a Cedarville student. We don't want to repeat your time at Cedarville, but we also don’t want it to stop!

We think that the community of believers that God is shaping at Cedarville has the potential to change the world, but we know we can’t do it alone. Talented business professionals that stay on top of their profession will have more opportunity to shape their business cultures and the communities they serve, and we want each of you to continue to improve in your ability to serve others. As part of that goal, we want to provide a connected experience that continues to pour into you, with both excellent resources and a great ecosystem of like-minded professionals that can be part of your extended team. We envision a robust ecosystem of students, alumni, Christian-led businesses, and your Cedarville family working together to craft connections and opportunities that will be an ongoing resource for you.
