What is a Group?

Cambridge’s Alumni Groups are an invaluable network of ambassadors, advocates and supporters who enable the University to continue to fulfil its mission and core values; to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence, and to support freedom of thought and expression and freedom from discrimination.

With nearly 450 Groups, serving over 215,000 alumni, this is the furthest-reaching alumni network of any university in the world – something of which we are immensely proud. Cambridge alumni are active in all walks of life, and the University and Colleges are deeply committed to building strong and enduring relationships with this global community in order to benefit from all the advantages it brings to both the University and its alumni. The network of volunteer Groups around the world is the community’s cornerstone.

Groups vary from a single alumna organising monthly pub meetings to large Groups who organise regular events and fundraise for student bursaries.

In turn, the University provides a range of services to support and promote the activity of all officially recognised Alumni Groups.
