ASU Alumni Association adds six new groups to chapter network

May 11, 2016/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 160. At its May 6 meeting, the Alumni Association board approved the creation of an alumni club for Sun Devils who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS); the upgrade of the alumni club in Portland, Ore., to an alumni chapter; and the establishment of four international connection groups, located in Ecuador, Liberia, Switzerland, and Hamburg, Germany.

These groups will join a network that now includes 45 geographically based groups within the United States, 23 academic affiliates focused on graduates of specific degree programs at the university, 20 special interest chapters or clubs representing alums of registered student organizations, and 72 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.
