Neeley School Welcomes New Director of Alumni and Constituent Relations

Dallisa“We have restructured the responsibilities of Neeley alumni relations to not only work with alumni of the Neeley School, but also to cultivate and deepen relationships with parents, business contacts and other important constituents,” said Dean Homer Erekson. In addition, an alumni position has been added to the TCU MBA office.

The new director of alumni and constituent relations is responsible for coordinating alumni relations across all Neeley programs, developing programs and activities for parents and other constituents, and partnering with Neeley external relations, development and career services to integrate Neeley relationships with alumni and other key partners. 

Dallisa Hocking joins Neeley with experience in creating engaging events and initiatives for internal and external communities of The Cosmopolitan, overseeing sustainability efforts and aligning the company with partnerships and volunteer programming. Previously she held a management role for Caesars Entertainment, overseeing development and activation of their internal communications, engagement and event programming, and directing the company volunteer outreach program for nine properties and 30,000 employees.  She was a board member of Las Vegas Business Academy, a member of UNLV Corporate Academic Council and an active member of Junior League. She recently was recognized as a Fearless Female by Las Vegas Woman Magazine and won the Chairman’s Award for Innovation from Caesars Entertainment. She holds a BA in corporate communications from the University of Nevada.

“For many years I’ve been a community connector, creating and sustaining meaningful relationships, so I look forward to engaging with Neeley alumni and constituents, building on the success that Neeley and TCU have already established,” Hocking said. “It’s an exhilarating time to be here, and I look forward to the journey ahead.”

Neeley alumni relations expanded with the move of Bunny Ridgeway to the MBA office as graduate alumni and program development assistant. She will further TCU MBA alumni operations and help develop a network for the growing number of TCU MBA international alumni.
