Alumni Association

Our Alumni Association, established in 1923 by Emmanuel College’s first graduating class, will keep you and your classmates up-to-date on the numerous special programs and events we offer – and that’s in addition to our much anticipated annual Reunion Weekend.

The Alumni Association is governed by a Board of Directors and partners with the College’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Association shall be to further Emmanuel College’s Catholic mission by challenging alumni to act, lead and give generously to others and to strengthen the bonds between the alumni and the College. The following values will guide the Association’s work: spirituality, service, pride, professionalism, relationships and traditions. The Association will translate into action the strong mission, beliefs and legacy of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and Emmanuel College by building bridges and inspiring involvement within the alumni community.
