The University of Minnesota Alumni Association is an independent non-profit membership organization dedicated to connecting alumni, students, and friends in lifelong support of the University of Minnesota and each other.

Founded in 1904, the University of Minnesota Alumni Association serves alumni and the University of Minnesota in a unique way. It is both an independent non-profit association, governed by a volunteer board of directors, and it is the University’s department of alumni relations. The Association and the department are served by a central staff and are guided by a common set of goals and objectives.

Donations and membership dues sustain important programs including student mentoring; legislative and grassroots advocacy; recognition of outstanding teachers, alumni, and students; alumni communications, member benefit programs and ongoing support for key University initiatives.
