Resources for alumni

The UVic Alumni Association is led by a large group of volunteers who are proud of their connection to the University of Victoria and are dedicated to maintaining strong ties between the university and its graduates.

All graduates automatically become members of the alumni association and are entitled to the exclusive services and benefits they offer.

The association's mission is to unite alumni support for the university, promote alumni participation in university governance, encourage support for students, and to build awareness of the university and the value of higher education.

The university provides staff support for the alumni association through the UVic Alumni Relations department, including:

  • The UVic Torch Alumni Magazine, mailed or emailed twice a year to all alumni.
  • A variety of alumni events and quality programming are organized every year keeping you informed and supported. See our Alumni Relations Officer at or (250) 853-3941 for more information.
