The moment you chose the U of A, you became a member of our alumni community—260,000 vital and passionate people who share their talents across Canada and around the world.

This is the place for you to take advantage of alumni benefits, attend events and network with other alumni, share memories and keep in touch with the university. Look around. There’s no shortage of ways to stay connected.

The role of the Alumni Association is defined by the Alumni Charter, an agreement between the association and the University of Alberta that outlines the important role that alumni and the Alumni Association play in contributing to the success of the university.

Presidents’ Circle

To commemorate the past century of alumni doing great things, the Alumni Association commissioned a bronze monument honouring the university’s founders as a gift to the university. The monument, titled The Visionaries, was created by acclaimed artist and University of Alberta alumna Barbara Paterson, ’57 BA(SpecCert), ’88 BFA. It is part of the University of Alberta Museums Art Collection.
