Legacy Program



A University of Rhode Island legacy is a student or alumnus/a who has a parent, guardian, grandparent, or sibling who is a URI graduate. The URI Alumni Legacy Program recognizes families for their continued generational support, provides networking opportunities, and helps legacies stay connected through special programs and events.

If you are a University of Rhode Island legacy, we encourage you to register online today (it's free!) so you and your family can be included in this important program!
