Everywhere they go, BYU alumni are banding together to strengthen each other, serve students, and extend the spirit of the Y.
You’ve heard the tagline—BYU Alumni, Connected for Good. Many of those connections happen through alumni chapters. But just what is an alumni chapter and what does it do? Traditionally, BYU alumni chapters are groups of grads and friends in an area who work together to stay involved with BYU. BYU Alumni now also has chapters based on professions and college units (such as construction management and the College of Nursing). All BYU chapters focus their energies on four areas:
1. Connecting Alumni and Friends
Chapters provide networking, career development, and social activities.
2. Serving and Inspiring Students
Chapters connect BYU grads with current and prospective BYU students. BYU alumni mentor students and help them secure internships, jobs, and scholarships.
3. Enlarging the Spirit of the Y
Wherever they live, chapter members act as lifelong ambassadors of BYU, serving others and celebrating the good in their communities.
4. Giving Back and Paying Forward
Chapter activities raise funds to provide scholarships for hundreds of students each year. Called replenishment grants, these scholarships come with the moral obligation to repay at some point in the future. Students facing challenging situations receive help now and return the favor down the road as they are able. To date, BYU alumni chapters have raised more than $5 million for need-based replenishment grants.
