RISD Alumni Association

Happy 125th Anniversary to the RISD Alumni Association! Sixty-seven alumni founded the RISD Alumni Association on June 2, 1894. They made it their mission to strengthen ties among alumni and to support students at RISD.

The RISD Alumni Association is your lifelong connection to RISD, serves as the voice of more than 30,000 alumni living worldwide and maintains a mutually beneficial relationship between alumni and the college.

All graduates from RISD are members of the Alumni Association – a potent network of creative leaders who champion RISD and one another. Alumni also enjoy a variety of benefits and access to exclusive programs.
