To provide the high quality programs and information U-M alumni expect, the Alumni Association has partnered with a number of alumni affiliate groups. The Alumni Association recognizes that alumni have a strong desire to engage with one another based on connections they may have had as students—connections based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, and professional or social interests. Affiliate groups provide alumni with an opportunity to interact and network with others based on similar interests and experience. We also offer a list of international alumni contacts.
If you have questions about the affiliate relations program, please email us at email@example.com or call us at 800.847.4764
Educational affiliates are organizations representing the degree granting entities of U-M.
