One of the main goals of the University of Bologna is to maintain and renew the involvement of our Alumni in university’s life, thus increasing the presence of the University in Italy and the world.

Our Alumni community includes more than 18,000 graduates each year, as well as anyone who, for various reasons, has undergone a process of learning and research at our University. Alumni represent an invaluable resource for the future of our University. Besides playing the role of real witnesses in Italy and abroad, they contribute with their time and skills to important initiatives for teaching, career guidance and networking.

Alumni are protagonists of a brand-new project of the University of Bologna, created within the Strategic Plan of the University and aimed to foster the development of knowledge and skills of our graduates and staff, as well as to develop connections and synergies between the University and society.

The University’s strategy aims to enhance our Alma Mater Alumni community as a network of ambassadors in the world and as a resource for developing relationships and projects through an active involvement in university’s life.

To implement these objectives, the University is pursuing specific initiatives, including the creation of Alumni chapters by geographical or subject area. In the Alma2021 portal it is possible to discover all the initiatives currently under way.
