Staying Connected with Friends, Faculty and the Community

At John Jay, we forge relationships that last a lifetime. Just as John Jay has become an integral part of who you are, our students, even after they graduate, are part of our family and network.  The Alumni Association is here to provide opportunities to make a difference by keeping you connected with graduates, faculty and staff within our vibrant community.

Get Involved

The John Jay Alumni Association organizes a number of networking and social events each year, such as the regional “John Jay On The Road” program that brings together distinguished alumni from around the country for insights and networking opportunities. 

We also offer career development opportunities by facilitating a career fair where you can get involved, share your experiences and mentor students. Additionally, encouraging internships at your company directed toward John Jay students and alumni can have a huge impact. Our social events, including fundraising activities, “Jay Walk Under The Stars” alumni gatherings, homecoming, reunions and golf tournaments, are aimed at deepening engagement with the John Jay community. The Alumni Association also organizes the annual Alumni Reunion, a series of celebratory and fun events.

Service to the Community

With John Jay’s focus on serving communities around the world, we encourage our alumni to participate and volunteer in the interest of improving their communities.  The College offers myriad  ways for you to give your time, talent, and treasure in support of our students and your alma mater.
