Global Alumni Ambassadors

Our Global Alumni Ambassadors serve as contacts for URI alumni, faculty, and students who may be traveling to or living in their region, and as liaison with the University and the Alumni Association. Ambassadors plan networking events, exhibit at college fairs, and communicate with prospective students and their families.  

The Alumni Association encourages alumni abroad to get together and host events in their region, and will offer support when possible. We welcome your event photos and stories. Stay in touch!
