Networking/Groups

The UAlbany alumni network is more than 158,000 strong. Tap into this powerful resource and connect with fellow alumni who can help you through the various stages of your career or who simply share a common interest.

There are many ways the Alumni Association supports alumni networking:

Alumni Groups/Events

Become a regional volunteer, connect with alumni who share a common interest through a constituent group or participate in class activities. We encourage you to check out what's available and get involved. If you have an idea for a group or an event that doesn't currently exist, give us a call. We'd love to hear your ideas!

Online Networks

Of course, you don't have to be in the same area to get in touch these days. Bigger, faster, stronger technology has changed the way we communicate, and the way we define community. Take advantage of these UAlbany networks to get connected.

Alumni Online Community and Career Advisory Network
UAlbany’s free alumni online community includes an alumni directory, UCAN: UAlbany Career Advisory Network, permanent email and much more.

Facebook
Stay in touch with thousands of UAlbany alumni on the UAlbany Alumni Association Facebook page.

LinkedIn
Check out the University at Albany Alumni page for professional networking

Twitter
Follow us on Twitter. Recent grads can also follow GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) on Twitter to learn about UAlbany news, GOLD events and GOLD alums in the news.

Permanent Email/Email Forwarding

Stay Connected with a free @alumni.albany.edu email address a service of the alumni online community. When a message is sent to your alumni email account, that message will forward to a personal email address that you specify.  If you change personal email accounts, you can easily update your address in the online community so that email sent to your UAlbany address will automatically be forwarded to your new address. This professional email address looks great on resumes, your curriculum vitae, business cards, and other official contact documents. It is also useful for social networking, or just to show your UAlbany pride!

Student Connections

The Alumni Association is committed to creating connections between students and alumni. The Association offers a variety of ongoing programs as well as special events throughout the year that give students an opportunity to interact with alumni and benefit from their real-world experience.
