ASU Alumni Association adds 16 new groups to chapter network

Arizona State University Alumni Association recently added 16 new groups to its chapter network, bringing the total number of groups operated by the association and its alumni volunteers to 176.

At its June 23 meeting, the Alumni Association board approved the upgrade of the alumni club in Las Vegas, to an alumni chapter; and the establishment of 15 international connection groups, in the following locations:

• Toronto, Canada
• Handan Hebrei, China
• Bangalore, India
• New Delhi, India
• Surat Gujurat, India
• Bali, Indonesia
• Banten Province, Indonesia
• Tokyo, Japan
• The Hague, Netherlands
• Karachi, Pakistan
• Kazan, Russia
• Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
• Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
• Bangkok, Thailand
• Istanbul, Turkey

These groups will join a network that now includes 45 geographically based groups within the United States, 33 academic affiliates focused on graduates of specific degree programs at the university, 19 special interest chapters or clubs representing alums of registered student organizations, and 79 international connection groups, representing Sun Devil alums worldwide.

The primary goal of chapters is to keep alumni connected to and engaged with ASU. Chapters sponsor a range of activities for their members, including networking events, Sun Devil game-watching celebrations, outdoor recreational activities, and service-oriented volunteer projects. Many chapters give back to the next generation of ASU students by providing mentoring services, by hosting Sun Devil Send-Offs for incoming ASU students, or by awarding scholarships.
