What is an alumni 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 Alumni 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 and alumnae 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 Alumni Groups around the world is the community’s cornerstone.

Groups vary from a single alumna using an email list to organise monthly pub meetings to large Alumni Group committees fundraising for student bursaries and organising events for new students.

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