Gulf Region (Qatar/UAE/Saudi Arabia)

Join the RISD Alumni Club of the Gulf Region to connect with alumni in our area. The club is run by local alumni volunteers, with support from the Office of Alumni Relations, to meet the interests of alumni in the Gulf Region.

Even though we are far from campus, our club organizes informal gatherings to connect with fellow alumni in the region and create the kind of community we enjoyed as students. Some events we could organize together include a #RISDServes volunteer project in our community to observe Founders Day (celebrating the anniversary of RISD's founding on March 22, 1877), conversations with RISD leaders, welcome events for incoming new students, and more. We would love to hear your ideas about what kind of events would most interest you and are always looking for volunteers to get involved!

We also need people to serve as club leaders and help organize and host our activities.
Contact alumni@risd.edu to get involved!
