Get Involved

Goal

Grow engaged constituents by 2,000, raise alumni giving participation to 24 percent, and raise $24 million in unrestricted annual giving.

The University of Rochester will only thrive with active engagement of its alumni, students, parents, and friends.

We are launching a University-wide campaign to increase awareness about—and participation in— our expanding alumni and constituent engagement programs. By 2021, we will engage 10,000 new constituents through events, fundraising, volunteerism, and other modes of connection.

By connecting more people to benefit one another, alumni and friends will strengthen the University and make the world ever better.


The University of Rochester experience doesn’t end when you graduate. You are always part of the global family.

At the University of Rochester, engagement matters.

Go. Give. Help. Connect. In 2017, more than 76,000 alumni, parents, and friends did just that. Across the country, more than 3,000 alumni volunteer leaders like Tiffany Taylor-Smith ’91 are hosting events, meeting classmates, mentoring students, and encouraging philanthropy. Why? Because no matter when they graduated or where they live today, they know that engaging with the University and connecting with each other helps build a stronger Rochester network.

Events

Listen to a professor give a lecture on exciting research in their field. See a performance by one of our student groups from Eastman. Gather with other University alumni and friends at a number of activities on campus and in regions near you. It’s easy to stay connected with the Rochester community around the globe.

Volunteer

There are thousands of alumni, parents, faculty and staff, and friends who serve as University volunteers. This includes membership on University boards and cabinets, attending meetings and events, promoting the University in their communities, and more.
