Alumni Leadership

How can you help? There are many ways for our alumni to get involved in the community! Special thanks to the many alums who organized events, served on panels, hosted students at your workplaces, tutored, interviewed prospective applicants, coached, interned and attended events. 

From organizing a class gathering, supporting our current students and young alums, or helping to plan new programs and events, there are many ways to stay involved. Connect with us here or email

Alumni Council 

Our Alumni Trustees and Alumni Council members are the driving force between the success of Urban’s alumni program and the connections made between our alums and the broader Urban community. They support alumni events and fundraising efforts, encourage engagement from other alumni and collaborate with the alumni office to further the mission of the school. We are grateful for their leadership and commitment!
