When you graduate, you automatically become a member of the SFU Alumni Association, a network of more than 155,000 graduates living in 140+ countries. The Alumni Association is here to keep you connected with your fellow alumni and the SFU community.
About the Alumni Association
The SFU Alumni Association will be an engaging and mutually beneficial lifetime link between Simon Fraser University and its community of alumni.
As stewards of the Alumni Association, Board members infuse their perspective as alumni to advise SFU leaders, champion initiatives that foster connections for alumni and students with each other and with the university, and serve as ambassadors by facilitating relationships with potential volunteers and donors to help advance SFU’s mission and the student and alumni experience.
We believe a lifelong relationship exists between alumni and the university. We recognize the importance of higher education to the development of society. We believe that quality and accessibility are essential if the university is to fulfil its mission of teaching, research and community service. We believe that alumni must contribute actively to the development of the university, and that this may include challenging the university's vision of itself. We acknowledge we are a caring organization, in our service to the membership, the university and the broader community.
