The Global Citizenship Alliance has a network of over 3,000 alumni – including (former) students, faculty, administrators, presidents, and board members – from more than eighty colleges and universities. One of the GCA’s goals is to activate and capitalize on the wealth of resources and talent represented by this alumni base in promoting global citizenship. To this end we aim to engage and re-engage with our alumni. Activities range from virtual engagement via our website, newsletter, blog, and social media outlets to regional alumni events.

GCP 68_UntersbergWe invite all of our alumni to take an active role in the GCA. You can do this by sending us updates on what you are doing, by regularly checking our website and social media platforms to share, comment, and ‘like’ what you see, by volunteering to write an article for our blog or newsletter, by organizing an alumni meeting in your area, or by simply being in touch.

Alliance Alumna Gives Commencement Speech at University of Hawai'i

I’m still overwhelmed by all the feedback, and still so happy to have represented my Fall class of 2017 at UH Manoa."
