Alumni Connections

 

Alumni Connections

No matter where life takes you, Drew graduates remain part of the community for the rest of their lives. Whether it’s through volunteering, joining an affinity group, attending regional events or Reunion (virtually for now), posting a Launch Bridges project, or giving back financially, there are many ways to stay connected with other alumni and with the life of the University.

ALUMS: ROCKET FUEL FOR LAUNCH.

We’re looking for a few good alums. People like you. Your experience, your insights, your time. When you mentor a Drew student, you do good in the world while boosting your own network.

Getting started on Drew Connect is simple. Our easy-to-use social networking platform is your online gateway to the powerful, worldwide Drew community. Students, alums, parents, faculty, staff and employers—they’re all here. Just sign on at drewconnect.drew.edu.

Have a short-term project for which you need help? With Launch Bridges, in minutes, you can create short-term, virtual projects for students and new Drew alums to help them acquire the critical, hands-on experiences needed to explore their purpose, gain transferable skills, build their résumé and launch their careers. More information is available here.

Formal Alumni Associations

Drew’s three formal Alumni Associations create a space in which Drew’s alumni can interact within a community of people who shared a unique experience, whether as undergraduates, graduate students or Theological School students. The Alumni Associations take a leadership role in developing, planning, promoting and delivering quality programs and services designed to keep you connected to the Drew community.

Affinity Networks

Affinity networks offer opportunities for alumni to connect with one another, students and the University around topics and issues of shared interest. Affinity programming is possible through the active involvement of alumni volunteers, and the Office of Alumni and Parent Communities is eager to help alumni develop new networks.

Contact us to learn more, get involved or start a new group.


 

Regional Clubs

Regional clubs play an important role in the University’s alumni engagement and education efforts. Working in collaboration with the Office of Alumni and Parent Communities, regional clubs organize programming in their local area to encourage alumni interaction and to strengthen alumni connections to Drew.

Drew also has regional groups in North Carolina, Atlanta and Southern California. To learn more, contact the Office of Alumni and Parent Communities at 973-408-3229 (we are working remotely, but leave a voice mail and we will call back) or alumni@drew.edu. See information about volunteering for a regional clubs.
