Alumni Connections

The Brown Alumni Directory is an online searchable database of alumni. In addition to using this powerful database to identify alumni contacts, it is important to update your profile so the University and fellow alumni can stay connected with you.

Need Help? Email the Alumni Help Desk with any questions. Please include your full name, class year and name while at Brown (if it has changed) along with your question.

The Alumni Events Calendar includes alumni events that are happening throughout the world and are a great way to stay in touch with Brown and make new connections with fellow alumni.

BrownConnect is an online tool that connects students with alumni. Students can reach out to alumni learn more about career options (networking and internships). Alumni are encouraged to list internship opportunities on the site as well.

Brown Clubs are volunteer alumni communities around the world. Currently, more than 100 clubs offer programming and engagement opportunities to keep you connected to Brown and to fellow alumni.

Brown alumni are eligible to join the Cornell Club in New York, which has reciprocity with a number of clubs around the world.

Commencement and Reunion activities are a blended tradition at Brown, held each year over Memorial Day Weekend in late May. School of Professional Studies graduates, alumni, faculty, administrators, family and friends join together with the entire Brown community for a weekend of celebration.

Alumni Benefits

Alumni receive “@alumni.brown.edu” email addresses through Gmail. Additionally, alumni accounts will continue to include Google calendar, contacts, documents and sites. This transition takes place shortly after graduation and graduates are alerted to the transition via email.

Brown offers a suite of career tools and resources that are easy to use, free and exclusively for alumni.
