Alumni Affinity Program

Stay connected to UVM through regional groups, shared interests, and experiences.

What is the UVM Alumni Affinity Program?

The affinity program offers opportunities for alumni of shared interests and common bonds to connect on meaningful levels beyond the traditional class and regional structure. Examples of these may include:

  • Student activity involvement (Outing Club, student leaders, The Cynic, WRUV)
  • Professional/career affiliation (environmental, legal, entrepreneurs, educators)
  • Identity-based (ALANA, Greek, Hillel, LGBT)
  • Regional programs (San Francisco, Minneapolis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Florida)

Why have a UVM Alumni Affinity Program?

Specifically, an affinity program:

  • Creates a medium through which alumni can reconnect with each other around shared experiences, interests, and identities
  • Increases opportunities for alumni to get involved and meet other UVM alumni
  • Promotes leadership
  • Fosters a sense of community within the UVM alumni population
  • Supports a culture of philanthropy for the University

The UVM Alumni Association recognizes the importance of these special interests and encourages alumni to connect with others who share this common bond.
