Upon graduation, you will join a network of more than 136,000 Highlanders. However, you don’t have to wait to connect with our alumni – you can get started now!

The Student Alumni Association (SAA) promotes strong student and alumni relations through programming and events that bring the two groups together. Hear from alumni at career conferences, receive mentoring from an alumnus working in your field, or attend an alumni dinner to network and learn more about a specific discipline.

SAA works closely with the UCR Alumni Association (UCRAA) to help students make an effortless transition into the alumni network. Interested in joining the board or becoming a general member? Share your email with us to stay informed of open positions.
