York’s alumni community at your fingertips
York U alumni enjoy volunteering with their alma mater and as a student, there’s lots you can learn from them: after all, they’ve been exactly where you are now. Whether requesting a speaker for your Student Club, signing up for a T.A.S.T.E. session or attending our GRADitude events, there’s many ways to benefit from the advice and perspective of our global community of change-makers.
Request alumni support for your event
The Alumni Engagement Fund for Student Clubs supports student organizations at York to involve alumni in their events. If you're seeking a speaker, want to curate a diverse alumni panel discussion, or organize an intimate fireside chat with industry leaders, we can help to find you the perfect alumni for your project.
Financial support is also available on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Ellie Coult, Alumni Engagement Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
The T.A.S.T.E. Mentoring Program provides York students with an opportunity to talk face-to-face with a professional about their career-related interests. The program pairs students with a mentor for an informal meeting where students learn about the mentor's career, industry, and organization.

“[Being an ambassador] was a really great way to explore the aspects of the University that we don’t see in the classroom. From research to alumni, to volunteer opportunities, it was so great to see the ways the University makes an impact in the local and global community.” -2018-2019 President’s Ambassador
Career Conversations: Ongoing

Alumni Networks are a great way to make friends, stay connected and support your alma mater. Networks can be based on geographic location, shared interest or according to college, department/program and faculty association.
We're grateful to our leaders who devote their time and expertise to lead our networks. Our alumni volunteers organize social activities, professional networking opportunities, support current students and more.
