ASU Alumni Association adds six new groups to chapter network

March 11, 2015/Tempe, Ariz.- Arizona State University Alumni Association recently added six new groups to its chapter network, bringing the total number of groups operated by the association and its alumni volunteers to 129.

The Alumni Association board, at its March 6 meeting, approved the formation of a Iranian-American alumni club for alumni who are originally from Iran, and international connection groups in Montreal, Canada; the Dominican Republic; New Delhi, India; Haiti; and Guam. These groups will join a network that now includes 42 geographically based groups within the United States, 23 academic affiliates focused on graduates of specific degree programs at the university, 15 special interest chapters or clubs representing alums of registered student organizations, and 49 international connection groups, representing Sun Devil alums worldwide.

The primary goal of chapters is to keep alumni connected to ASU, whether it be through their academic program, their current geographic location or the registered student organizations or university sponsored student groups in which they participated. Chapters sponsor a range of activities for their members, including networking events, Sun Devil game-watching celebrations, outdoor recreational activities, and service-oriented volunteer projects. Many chapters give back to the next generation of ASU students by providing mentoring services, by hosting Sun Devil Send-Offs for incoming ASU students, or by awarding scholarships.
