Alumni Relations

The university seeks the full support of its alumni and, in return, offers them a number of services and programs. Rutgers University`s Department of Alumni Relations is responsible for working with the more than 330,000 Rutgers alumni. The mission of the department is to increase and strengthen alumni support for Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and its schools and colleges, recognizing that their graduates are the institution's only enduring and permanent constituency. The department maintains contact with Rutgers alumni, informing them of the university's programs and services, in the hopes that the alumni will continue to support Rutgers in fulfilling its mission of providing outstanding academic and extra-curricular programming. The department also encourages alumni to continue to foster their relationship with the university and with their peers by attending social, cultural, educational, and service-based activities.

There are 19 alumni associations that represent the many undergraduate and graduate schools within Rutgers. The 19 alumni associations are wholly represented by the Rutgers University Alumni Federation, which sponsors universitywide programs such as Homecoming, the Hall of Distinguished Alumni Awards, the Alumni Meritorious Service Awards, group travel, and group insurance. Each alumni associate sponsors events and programming based on the interests and goals of their particular alumni and college. Scholarships, student recruitment, career guidance, and social activities are just a few of the programs that an alumni association may participate in. Active membership in an alumni association is maintained through a yearly dues program and members receive special benefits. The Department of Alumni Relations provides guidance and administrative services to the alumni associations, as well as to the network of regional clubs located throughout the country. One such administrative function is the maintenance of biographical and address records of alumni. The university also publishes the Rutgers Magazine for alumni and friends to keep abreast of news at Rutgers.
