Regional Programming

AlumNetwork is who we are. Gather is what we do. And we’ve designed open-source, DIY get-togethers to help you activate the power of your fellow alumni.

We realize that getting a highly creative and busy group of people together can be a challenge. But we’ve made an easy, three-step process to help you get together, connect and stir things up.

  1. Design a theme/concept/idea for a gathering that you’d like to help organize.
  2. Contact the Alumni Relations office and we’ll help you coordinate, spread the word and provide support.
  3. Gather. See what happens.

The ethos of an open-source community is to collaborate, learn, problem solve and share. The more gatherings we create, the more we can refine the art of designing fun and interesting events for each other. You know the process: ideate, prototype, refine, repeat. Create something unique, enjoy some face-to-face social time, gather, connect and laugh. Anything is possible.

Gather is also the name of our new alumni publication. A broadsheet-style paper, we’ll send twice a year, mostly to let you know what sort of DIY get-togethers your fellow alumni have dreamed up.

Alumni Chapters

Alumni chapters are located in 16 dynamic regions around the world where you’ll find a strong alumni presence. Chapter chairs serve as ArtCenter ambassadors, promote College-sponsored activities and plan programming that brings local alumni together.
