Make connections

Open the door to a global community.

As one of Charles Sturt University’s 240,000+ graduates, you’re part of an inspiring global community of networks, advocates, supporters and peers.

Good networks are vital to both personal and professional success, so we work hard to develop opportunities for you to stay connected with the University and your fellow alumni.

Stay connected

We encourage you to join one of our alumni associations run by our amazing volunteers, attend a networking event in a town or city near you, organise a reunion, or talk to us about starting a networking group of your own.

By taking an active role you can connect with like-minded people, expand your networks, share your industry knowledge, gain priceless insights, and support fellow Charles Sturt grads… so many reasons to stay connected!

Form an alumni association or group

An alumni association is created by a group of alumni who share a common location (country, city or region) or interest (course, industry or profession) and set up an ongoing program of activities.

Forming an alumni association is a great way for members to build and maintain networks and to maintain their connection with the University in mutually beneficial ways.

If you’re interested in forming an association for your location or profession, we’ve pulled together our top tips:

  • Contact an existing association for pointers and sage advice. The Alumni Office can help put you in touch.
  • Identify enthusiastic alumni to drive the Association and identify its aims and objectives
  • Decide activities, programs, events, and methods of communication
  • Decide on your Association structure and match roles with the skillsets of your volunteers
  • Communicate your plan to start an Association to the wider alumni group to gauge interest
  • Hold an event to further explain the Association concept to wider group and introduce them to the committee
  • Begin communications with group via their preferred channels (newsletter, social media, emails etc)
  • Begin Association programs/activities/events and hold regular meetings for the committee and any other interested people
  • If the group decides it wants a more formal structure, hold an AGM and formally adopt a constitution and elect Office Bearers.

And don’t forget, we’re here to help. Contact for assistance with setting up and promoting your Association.

Organise a reunion

We then help you:

  • promote your event on our alumni social media platforms
