Regional Alumni Council

The New York City Chapter is led by a council of alumni volunteers. These individuals work with staff from the Office of Alumni Relations to plan events, programs, volunteer opportunities and networking connections throughout the year. If you are an alum who loves RIT and is willing to help us organize, promote and build a strong RIT alumni association in New York City, consider joining the council today.

If you are interested in joining the Alumni Council, contact one of the leaders, volunteers or staff members highlighted on this page.

RIT has seen a tremendous amount of change over the past decade and is gaining national recognition. The customizable academic programs coupled with co-ops and intense programming make RIT graduates some of the best hires in the workplace. As one of the largest alumni chapters, I believe the NYC chapter has the opportunity to amplify that message and pay it forward. I am excited to play my part.

As an alum, you have many ways to contribute to the RIT story. Join us for the many RIT collegiate or alumni events in the city, talk to prospective students or recent graduates, network with other alumni, attend a career fair as a recruiter or participate in RIT Giving. And, if you want to help with alumni programming, please reach out to me. I look forward to meeting you. Go TIGERS!
