Stay in touch with your alumni

Do you want to communicate to your alumni via email? To do so, you will need to coordinate with the UofL Alumni Office. It’s easy to do now. Just go to their alumni communication forms page and submit your request. The website covers topics such as:

If you have an alumni focused event you would like to promote, please submit 6-8 weeks prior to your event/project deadline and the Alumni Office will set up an online announcement on their website with a calendar listing and landing page.
