Events &
Alumni Relations

The Events & Alumni Relations team is responsible for all alumni and fundraising events that take place in North America, as well as keeping the alumni network running and vibrant.  The Oxford North American Office organizes about 40 events each year, including lectures and book signings featuring Oxford academics and alumni, holiday receptions, admissions information sessions, freshers send-off parties and networking events.  The premier event is the biennial Alumni Weekend in North America, which is next scheduled for spring 2018 in San Francisco, CA.

There are over 34,000 alumni living in North America and nearly 40 Oxford Alumni Groups.  Alumni volunteers throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and Bermuda organize local events such as Boat Race dinners, happy hours, tours, concerts, garden parties, luncheons and more.  Contact the Events & Alumni Relations team to receive information about upcoming events or to get involved in your local alumni group in North America.  We look forward to seeing you at an alumni event soon!

The Events & Alumni Relations team also oversees the North American Office’s internet and social media presence, including regularly updating information on our website. We encourage you to explore the site to learn more about Alumni Authors, Oxford museum loans near you, and upcoming alumni events! We also maintain an active presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; the information for all of our social media networks can be found at the bottom of each of the pages on the website.
