Alumni Affairs, housed under the umbrella of the Chicago State Foundation, is the bridge to alumni internally and externally and the University's Alumni Association. We proudly connect family—alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty, and staff within the Chicago State University community.

Our alumni family — 44,000-strong — is a diverse, vibrant and growing community dedicated to making our world better. We are risk-takers and innovators. Dreamers and doers. And, we are committed to helping all alumni thrive whether through career guidance, professional networks, special events, or our clubs and societies that span the globe.

Our goal is to build a Cougar Nation that strengthens the relationship between alumni and the University, and that assists the Alumni Association in its mission to recruit and support fellow alumni and our alma mater, CSU. To accomplish this goal we are creating innovating programs and events that involve your classmates, friends, and peers. Our goal is to encourage, inspire and assist you in being a Cougar for life, and we work hard to achieve it.
