Alum communities & regional networks

Joining an alum community or regional network is one of the best ways to stay connected with other alumni. With regional networks spanning the globe and alum communities spanning a variety of identities, shared interests and more, these groups offer many ways to get involved as a participant or volunteer.  

If you’re interested in volunteering with an existing alum community or regional network, or championing the formation of a new group, then we are looking for you! Contact Kate Hollefreund, Alumni Relations Officer, Volunteer Networks to find out how to get involved.
