Alumni Networks

Alumni Networks are a great way to make friends, stay connected and support your alma mater. Networks can be based on geographic location, by shared interest or according to your college, department/program and faculty association.

We a grateful to our leaders who devote their time and expertise to lead our alumni networks! Our alumni volunteers organize social activities, professional networking opportunities, support current students and much more!

See below for a list of existing York alumni networks. If you’re interested in joining one of our networks or learning more about their events and/or looking to start a network that's not in our directory below, please contact Joanne Huy at johuy@yorku.ca or 416-736-2100 ext. 44659.
