How to start an alumni network
Alumni are part of our distinguished institution’s family, which ranks in the top 1% in the world. Alumni have a history of shared experiences and memories, understood by those who studied before them, those who studied with them and those who will soon join the alumni community.
If you have the passion to connect or reconnect, we are delighted to invite you to establish a formal network. The Alumni Relations team is here to provide alumni with the resources, support and guidance required to successfully execute their programs.
To better understand the roles and responsibilities of an alumni network, read the alumni network handbook and alumni network position descriptions below. For more information or assistance, please contact the Alumni Relations team.
Alumni funding scheme
The University recognises the significant effort and commitment of formal Alumni Networks in the advancement of the University’s Alumni Program. Although networks are expected to be financially self sufficient in their overall operations, we recognise that new and larger projects may require some additional funding assistance from the University. In 2008 a fund was established to support such projects. These funds are intended to support a new project or enhancement of an existing program. They are not intended to provide ongoing support to an annual program or activity.
2017 funding scheme applications are now open to all alumni networks.
Previous funding scheme recipients
Roseworthy Old Collegians Association
‘Celebrating 25 Years Over 25 Weeks’
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the amalgamation of Roseworthy College and the University of Adelaide, ROCA launched its ‘Celebrating 25 Years Over 25 Weeks’ Facebook campaign. Over the period of 25 weeks, 25 Roseworthy graduates and members of ROCA were featured on Facebook, to profile their careers, achievements, milestones and passion for agriculture. These stories inspired a large number of ‘lost’ Roseworthy alumni to reconnect with ROCA and resulted in over 100 new memberships.
Adelaide University Alumni Association Singapore
‘AUAAS Learning Fiesta’
AUAAS organised a one day Learning Fiesta in July 2017, focused on promoting and cultivating soft skills to Singapore alumni. This TED-style conference featured talks by prominent speakers and a panel discussion on the skills necessary for personal and career success for recent graduates and early to mid career executives.
