Alumni throughout the country and the world find value in meeting with fellow grads on a regular basis to talk, share information and plan programs, activities and initiatives of interest to RISD people in their particular region. Online connections through RISD groups on LinkedIn and Facebook also provide valuable ways for alumni to keep in touch with one another both personally and professionally.
The Alumni Council is a group of approximately 25 volunteers who lead club activities in various locations around the country and the world. This group comes together several times a year in Providence as the governing body of the Alumni Association, with the goal of promoting alumni interest in and involvement with RISD and bringing alumni together, fostering interaction between alumni and students, and encouraging alumni to support the college. For more information, contact the Alumni Relations Office at email@example.com or call 401 709-8585.
Social media / online networks
A growing number of alumni appreciate opportunities to connect with fellow graduates through RISD’s LinkedIn community. In addition, various regional clubs maintain active Facebook pages to keep local alumni apprised of events and opportunities close to home. RISD alumni also come together through a RISD Etsy team page and a curated RISD page on Kickstarter. And, of course, alums also follow RISD on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The following groups of alumni meet locally to organize ongoing events and activities designed to meet the needs and interests of each club. Feel free to contact club leaders directly to find out how to get involved.
