Alumni Association

Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center

The University of Maryland Alumni Association exists to foster a spirit of loyalty, involvement and life-long commitment to the university for its more than 340,000 living alumni. The association is a nonprofit, membership organization for alumni of the University of Maryland, College Park.

Through traditional and innovative programming, the Alumni Association provides hundreds of programs and initiatives each year which strive to fulfill its mission of connecting, cultivating and channeling the power of Terps to both enrich themselves and advance the University.

The alumni association offers all graduates access to the dynamic network of Terrapins who share interests, common acquaintances, professions, locations and more. It promotes opportunities for alumni to volunteer in their communities or travel the world with fellow Terps.  Most important, the alumni association seeks to build Terrapin spirit through over 60 alumni regional, affinity and academic networks throughout the country.

While the association serves all alumni, it also provides special programs and services to members of the association, including consumer discounts, a Terp to Terp mentorship program, access to members-only events, and special pricing at association events.

The alumni association is governed by a board of alumni volunteers and is supported by countless other alumni volunteers around the world.
