INFO Alumni Updates & Opportunities
Stay connected, support students, enjoy events, network, and engage in lifelong learning! Joining the UMD Alumni Association, serving on an INFO Alumni Network committee or board, volunteering to help at a college event, making a donation to support a college program or student scholarship fund, or providing career advice to current students as a guest speaker—these are all great ways to stay connected to the UMD INFO College. Alumni also have the opportunity to enjoy free and discounted UMD events and INFO events for lifelong learning, networking, or just for fun! Alumni who join the UMD Alumni Association automatically become members of the INFO Alumni Network (also known as the iSchool Alumni Network), which focuses on supporting new generations of INFO students through scholarships, mentorship, internships, and industry connections. Network members also enjoy regularly scheduled INFO-specific alumni networking and social events.
