Chapters and Groups
Reflecting diverse interests and backgrounds, our alumni chapters and affinity groups—people connected by a common interest or goal—help to strengthen FDU, while providing personal and professional networking opportunities for members. Each chapter or group is led by alumni volunteers with support and guidance from the Office of Alumni Relations.
Black Alumni Chapter
The BAC implements a mentorship program and plans events to strengthen relationships and communication with Black FDU students while building a collaborative professional alumni network.

The Rutherford Campus Alumni Chapter focusses on maintaining the bonds and friendships that were formed at Rutherford through an annual alumni reunion, typically held each Spring semester.

Young Alumni Association
The Young Alumni Association (YAA) works to build and help maintain lifelong relationships among FDU alumni. The YAA is for all FDU alumni who have graduated in the past 15 years; age is not a factor. Young alumni can grow their networks, stay connected or reconnect with other alumni and friends; give back to the University and community; receive guidance on the transition from student to alumni life; share information; attend activities targeted to their needs and interests; and participate in career-development programming.
President: Hope Field, BA'04, MA'07
