About the Alumni Association
The Binghamton University Alumni Association is nearly as old as the University itself.
The Harpur College Alumni Association elected its first officers in 1951, following
the first Commencement. As Harpur College grew and became a part of the State University
of New York, the Alumni Association grew and today serves as the umbrella organization
for a number of alumni groups and activities.
The Office of Alumni Engagement supports the Alumni Association, working on behalf of its board of directors, an all-volunteer policy-setting body. The Association represents more than 120,000 alumni, and is a non-dues paying organization. All graduates automatically become members and are entitled to the quality services and activities provided by the association.
Whether your connections to Binghamton University are through one of the six schools, various athletic teams, special interest networks or other groups, the Alumni Association serves as a source of volunteer guidance, resources, camaraderie and support. We hope you will join us in our activities; don't hesitate to let us know what you want from your Alumni Association. Your interests are important. Together, we will help ensure the excellence that is the source of our pride in Binghamton University.
The Binghamton University Plan for Alumni Engagement 2015-2020 (download PDF) is the result of an unprecedented collaboration between the Alumni Association, University senior leadership and campus partners. As a graduate of Binghamton University, what you will see is a more visible and relevant Alumni Association that provides greater opportunities for you to connect with the University and with other alumni.
