Alumni Chapter Volunteers

American University has 34 alumni chapters around the world. Our alumni live in all US states and territories, 160 countries, and all seven continents (including Antarctica every now and then). Our chapter leaders are the backbones of our alumni programs. They work hard to ensure alumni the world over have opportunities to network and socialize.

Interested in starting a chapter in your area?

Chapters must be approved by the AU Office of Alumni Relations. All expectations for chapters are outlined in the chapter manual. Each alumni chapter is expected to:
• Have at least one alumnus/a committed to serve as a volunteer chapter leader
• Have at least two named volunteers to help with events and promotion (as a co-leader and a planning committee member)
• Plan at least two events per year that serve different purposes (i.e. athletic, community service, career/networking, family-friendly, etc.)

Alumni Relations staff members are always interested in helping alumni launch new chapters where there are groups of interested Eagles! Contact Melissa Bevins at to discuss launching a chapter in your area.
