Alumni Association

The mission of the Syracuse University Alumni Association is to create an environment in which Syracuse University alumni, former students, parents, students and friends become and stay connected to the University and support it with their work, wisdom and wealth.  The Alumni Association implements its mission in partnership with the University’s Office of Alumni Engagement. Together, we will successfully implement the following priorities:

The Alumni Association will be a leading voice in sharing with alumni the University’s vision and the accomplishments of the students, faculty, and staff of Syracuse University. The Alumni Association will also celebrate the accomplishments of alumni, both great and small, as the backbone of what makes our University great.
The Alumni Association will be an active participant with the Office of Alumni Engagement as it engages alumni through programs on and off campus that expand and strengthen the connections between them and our alma mater. This engagement will come through educational programs (working with students and faculty), arts programs and other activities. Through increased use of technology, alumni will be connected with and informed of the University’s programs and activities and enabled to connect with and network with one another, individually and through alumni clubs.
