C. Denise Dawson ’93 is Charleston Southern’s new director of alumni engagement. She was formerly an enrollment counselor for CSU in the enrollment and marketing division. 

“My favorite part of working in enrollment was talking about CSU,” said Dawson. She brings that love for Charleston Southern to her work with alumni.

“Denise brings great enthusiasm and passion to engage our alumni in the life of the university,” said Beth Myers, associate vice president for development. “Her love of CSU will be beneficial in connecting with alumni.” 

Dawson is committed to interacting with alumni, building relationships, and letting alumni know what CSU offers as far as events and family-friendly activities. “Especially coming out of COVID, we want to reconnect with our alumni and help them fall in love with CSU again,” said Dawson.

She is interested in what alumni think engagement looks like and is looking forward to gatherings where alumni can meet and network.

Dawson graduated from CSU in 1993 with a sociology degree. She is currently enrolled in CSU’s Master of Arts in organizational management program. She and her husband have three children, and their middle child is scheduled to begin CSU this fall.
