Chapters

RIT's Alumni Chapters exist to engage alumni, families, students, faculty and staff in lifelong relationships with both the university and each other. This is accomplished thruogh events, volunteer opportunities and the overall creation of alumni communities across the globe. These communities are run by alumni volunteers that serve on a Council, and together with the Office of Alumni Relations, they strive to promote RIT’s core values, enhance institutional support from alumni and ultimately, advance the reach of RIT.

Collectively, our Chapters host over 200 events worldwide each year, involving over 5,000 alumni. These activities span many interests including educational, cultural, athletic, networking and social events. Click the icons below to find out what's happening in your chapter.
