Alumni Network of the University of Siegen
The term "alumni" is not just a phrase used for former students or lecturers of a university. It’s a shared concept in which former students, and employees of a university stay in contact with one another and their former institution. By doing so they become a part of a larger university-wide network.
The Alumni Network (Alumniverbund) of the University of Siegen is the university-wide international network of the University of Siegen. Since 2000 it has been connecting its members across the university, faculties and the world. Currently there are 15,000 current and former students, lecturers, researchers, as well as other employees of the university. Decentralised alumni-groups and departmental groups from different faculties are included within the network.
Through its range of services and events, as well as cooperation with departmental and local groups, the network offers a multitude of opportunities for alumni to stay in contact with the University of Siegen, in order to exchange ideas and to network, both internationally and across disciplines.
The network is organised through our alumni portal myAlumni. Participation as a member of the university-wide network of the University of Siegen is free of charge.

As a central institution, the alumni association is assigned to the rectorate of the university. As a central service and coordination point, the alumni association supports the alumni activities at faculty level and networks the professional exchange with the university.
Alumni go Europe

Services for alumni associations were further developed through joint learning partnerships with institutions from England, Spain and Austria in the "Alumni go Europe" project. These partnerships resulted in the setting of benchmarks which enable comparisons between successful alumni organisations.
