Regional Alumni Council

The Syracuse 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 the Syracuse area, 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 or call the Office of Alumni Relations at 585-475-7638.

I was very active at RIT when I was there for my MBA.  After graduation, I was involved with the local young alum group.  After a few years of volunteering at RIT and working for RIT I joined the Saunders College of Business board.  It was an excellent way to give back to RIT and stay connected.  After relocating to Syracuse I knew I wanted to get involved with the Syracuse community as well as continuing to have strong ties with RIT.   It is my vision that this group will allow our community to reconnect, network with other alumni, and maintain a connection to the RIT community.

I hope to see every RIT Alumnus in the Syracuse area at our alumni events.  You won't be disappointed, not only will you have fun but they are also a great way to stay connected to RIT and to your fellow alumni. Let any of us know at any time if you have an idea, question or comment.  I look forward to seeing you all soon.
