New York City Alumni Chapter

Not only is New York City home to Broadway, the Empire State Building, and perhaps the tastiest restaurants in the world, it is also one of American University’s largest and most diverse alumni networks. Through the New York City chapter, alumni professionals – from investment bankers to teachers – participate in a diverse range of social, cultural, and professional events. Recent events have included happy hours, museum tours, and Q&A lectures with AU faculty.

Get Involved

There is room for everyone who would like to get involved with the New York chapter. We always welcome new faces and new ideas. Fill out our alumni volunteer form to get involved, and be sure to find us on Facebook. Questions? E-mail
