Types of Networks:
Special Interest Alumni Networks: These are groups organized around a specific industry or special interest based activities. These alumni networks are more narrowly tailored to serve alumni communities.
Note: In summer 2013, there will be an online portal called AlumniNet which will offer the ability to create special interest alumni networks that can be organized around a specific industry, special interest, or a smaller alumni population than chartered networks. If you would like your special interest alumni network to participate in this online community please contact Jyoti Roy: (503) 725-8213
Regional Alumni Networks: These United States based networks are identified as areas where a significant number of alumni live and work (300+). They are officially chartered by the PSU Alumni Association.
International Alumni Networks: Like regional networks in the United States, these are networks formed in a specific country for members of that country to stay connected to Portland State University.
Regional and International Alumni Networks benefit those who have moved (or are moving) away from Portland by connecting them to other Alumni in their region. It is a great opportunity to network, learn the area, make friends, and be a part of PSU even from a distance. These chartered networks work in partnership with the PSU Alumni Association.
For those wishing to start an Alumni Network in their area, please click here for more information, or contact: Jacqueline Fitzner, Office of Alumni Relations at (503) 725-8942.
We will help you assess the population in your area and guide you through the process of establishing a Network.
