With more than 133,000 Emory alumni in all corners of the world, your Emory Alumni Board represents the diverse interests of our alumni body to the university. Together with Emory thought leaders, we will address opportunities to help Emory excel as a global university and provide access and equity of experience for all students. 

We all have fond student memories of Emory, and our current students are making their own memories. This year, our goal is to foster shared connection between students and alumni, beginning with admission events, interviews, and Destination Emory parties. We encourage alumni to “hire Emory first” and create student internship opportunities that will open for them the world of professional possibility. No matter where you live and work, you can stay involved with the Emory student-to-alumni experience. Invite a local student to attend a chapter event with you or join forces for a project on Emory Cares International Service Day in November. 

We recognize that alumni are in different stages of life, whether newly employed, building a career, or nearing retirement. Wherever you find yourself, you share an important common thread: Emory. Strengthen that connection today by registering to explore the Emory network in your new online community at www.alumni.emory.edu. Please join me in making this a rewarding year.
