International Alumni

When you finish your degree at URI, it’s only the beginning. The University of Rhode Island Alumni Association keeps you connected to the University’s mission and traditions, whether here in the US or in another country. Social and networking events are planned in cities around the world and alumni are invited to participate. International Alumni Ambassadors are URI alumni volunteers who are liaisons with the University and Alumni Association. They plan events, assist at college fairs, and support alumni abroad.

We currently have over 20 International Alumni Ambassadors located around the world and becoming involved is a great way to stay connected with URI, see old classmates, and meet new friends. With our expanding international student body, we have more international events every year and more volunteers for our International Alumni Ambassador program. See if there is one in your area, or become one yourself!
