The Alumni network thrives on the commitment of its members

More than 10 years ago the University of Potsdam launched an alumni program according to the motto "We stay in touch". Around 11,000 of our former students, employees or researchers wish to stay in touch with their alma mater. Many of them are willing to give something back in the future based on their own experiences, whether as speakers, mentors, or supporters of projects. In order to strenghten the alumni spirit and the commitment that comes with it, the contribution of each and every alumnus/alumna is very important to us. Continue to stay connected to your alma mater and actively help us to shape our university.

There are many ways to get involved with the university and its students. You have questions or ideas? Get in touch with us.
