Students and alumni are welcome to make an appointment with the SIS Office of Alumni Relations to learn more about how to take advantage of their AU SIS Alumni Network. Make your appointment today!

SIS Alumni shake hands.

SIS students and alumni have many opportunities to interact and network with one another. When you become a student, and later an alumnus/a, you are part of an exclusive network of 15,000+ professionals and resources around the world. Students and alumni who take advantage of the SIS Student-Alumni Network might even land a new job through the connections they make.

The SIS Student-Alumni Network will not only serve your needs but the needs of others.


SIS students and alumni can take advantage of the following opportunities:

  • SIS Student-Alumni Mentoring Program.
  • Annual SIS Student-Alumni Networking Reception - Every Spring.
  • Alumni in the Atrium series - featuring different alumni most Tuesday afternoons from 4:00 - 5:00 PM. Alumni sit in the SIS atrium and speak with students about they got to where they are today and offer resume, cover letter, and networking tips. NEW this year we are going ONLINE with this series as well. Every month we will feature an alumnus/a online. Students and alumni will RSVP for the event, receive a link, and then have a full hour to ask the alumnus/a questions. For future event dates, please visit the AU Alumni Events Calendar.
  • SIS Industry Days - open to current graduate students and alumni interested in visiting an employer and meeting AU alumni that work on-site. Please visit the AU Alumni Events Calendar for future Industry Days dates and locations. Read more here.
  • Alumni panel and symposium discussions throughout the year. Please complete a volunteer sign-up form and note your interests on the form.
  • The official SIS LinkedIn Group connecting more than 6,000 students, alumni, faculty and staff.
  • SIS Alumni Chapter - An exclusive group for D.C.-area SIS alumni to participate in professional and student-alumni engagement events. Future chapter events can be found on the AU Alumni Events Calendar.
  • Dinner with Alumni - The Dinner with Alumni program brings students with alumni together through a series of dinners scheduled during the school year. These dinners are great career networking opportunities for students to interact with current experts in the field. To learn about upcoming alumni dinners, visit the AU Alumni Events Calendar.
  • AU Alumni Association Online Community - the official AU alumni online directory AU students can access. Students are encouraged to connect with fellow Eagles to build their networks.
