Purpose / Board

The ALUMNI Organisation provides a good opportunity to maintain the relationships and contacts established during your studies or doctorate and to remain up to date with what is happening at your alma mater.

The ALUMNI organisation works closely with the university's faculties and the University Executive Board and represents the interests of the university's alumni with the alma mater. The aim of the association is to promote networking among alumni and to maintain their ties with their alma mater – a benefit both for the alumni and for the University of Lucerne: the alumni allow the university to share their practical knowledge and experience and promote cohesion at the interface between science and practice.

As well as cultivating the network, we focus on supporting our current University of Lucerne students by means of e.g. library projects, career events and other student initiatives. 

The ALUMNI Organisation as a donator
In addition to maintaining the network, the focus is on supporting current students at the University of Lucerne. Thus, projects that benefit students are regularly supported, e.g. library projects, career events or student initiatives.
