Our Mission…

The Arts Alumni Network is an initiative designed to foster a shared sense of community and connection among UChicago Alumni from all parts of the institution who are active in the arts, culture, and entertainment fields. We hope it will provide an effective platform for professional peer-group networking in the arts as well as expand the network of resources for current students and recent graduates. The University realizes how important the arts are, and wants to use this group to help highlight the success of UChicago alumni working in the arts across the country.

Membership: Membership is free and open to all alumni, parents, and friends, and you can join by signing in to the group’s website, attending an Arts Alumni-sponsored event, or emailing

Affinity groups are a means through which members of the UChicago community can continue their association with the University by engaging with each other around shared interests and shared identities. Affinity networks are global in reach, offering professional, educational, and social programming. Affinity groups complement the work of the alumni clubs, class councils, and professional alumni associations.

University of Chicago Class Councils

The Class Council is a group of volunteers from one College class who work to strengthen their classmates’ connection to the University and to each other in non-reunion years. The Class Council is designed to connect classmates socially, intellectually, professionally, and philanthropically, all the while ensuring the University of Chicago remains one of the elite private insititutions in the country.

The Class Council program seeks to engage University of Chicago alumni and offers alumni the opportunity to take ownership of their class activities and initiatives. In addition to fundraising, Class Councils recruit classmates to volunteer for CAPS, the Alumni Schools committee, and the Metcalf Internship program. Class Councils also create social opportunities during Alumni Weekend and in cities across the country.

The Class Council is an exceptional volunteer leadership opportunity for UChicago alumni, providing excellent networking opportunities with alumni, faculty, and staff, and can lead to other leadership roles at the University.

It makes no difference where you live or what your talents are; there’s something for everyone. If you’re a good host, you can help plan the class event; if you’re an advertising guru, you can help spread the word and encourage classmates to attend; if you have a knack for persuasion, you can help raise the class gift.
