Alumni Engagement

As an iSchool graduate, you have reason to celebrate. Not only are you prepared for an exciting and fulfilling future, you have lifelong connections to a dynamic community. Through these connections, you'll have opportunities to maintain relationships with faculty and classmates, broaden your professional network, mentor current students, and remain engaged with the iSchool long after graduation day.

Keep in touch

We always are interested in learning about your career and life accomplishments. Please take the time to update your contact information and/or share a Class Note with news of your recent publications, awards, marriages, retirements, moves, promotions, and birth announcements by using our Alumni Update Form.
