With over 85 alumni chapters in more than 60 countries, the Schulich Global Alumni Network represents a highly successful community of more than 28,000 graduates from Schulich’s degree programs dating back to the first graduating class in 1967.

The mission of the Alumni Relations Office is to build long-term and highly engaged relationships with Schulich students, alumni and other stakeholders to foster a strong and connected alumni community and advance the mission of the Schulich School. Schulich’s Alumni Relations Office is actively involved in student life and promoting a lifelong alumni relationship that starts the first day you arrive at Schulich. Through an extensive schedule of events and programs to promote interaction between students and alumni, students gain access to alumni and their unique perspectives. Alumni serve as a valuable resource to current students seeking to better understand the impact of the Schulich degree experience and the many exciting opportunities that await them after Convocation.
