The Northeastern family includes more than our alumni. We want to ensure our parents, students, and friends of the university feel welcome at events and gatherings around the world. We recently transformed the name of our alumni chapters to "communities," and welcome all members of the Northeastern community to explore opportunities, events, and programs in their region.

Our network of domestic and international communities provides opportunities to network, share university pride, volunteer for community service, and aid in the recruiting of prospective students. With more than 30 communities worldwide -- and more to come -- it's easy to stay connected to Northeastern.

Many alumni often have a special connection to an Affinity Group which played a pivotal role in enriching their student experience. These groups, whether based on ethnicity, interest, or vocation, serve as important cultural or professional connections that often last well beyond their time at Northeastern.

If you’d like to get involved in a community or group or are interested in helping to start a new community in your area, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 888.NUALUMNI (682.5866) or
