Alumni outreach and engagement activities

We are currently developing our alumni outreach and engagement activities to become increasingly diverse and extensive. Our goal is to find common ground with our alumni to gain insight into how we could further enhance our education and research to better correspond to future working life needs.

Taking place on both campuses in alternate years, the university’s general alumni event culminates in the announcement of the Alumnus/Alumnae of the Year Award. In addition to the general alumni event, academic departments and subject associations also have their own alumni outreach and engagement activities.

This year, a one-year programme piloting alumni mentoring was launched at the University of Eastern Finland, and the experiences and feedback gained will be used to further develop the opportunities of alumni to engage in mentoring.
