Forming an alumni group

Alumni Hong Kong Metropolitan University Alumni Association (HKMUAA)   About alumni groups   Forming an alumni group  

Your most cherished university life won’t just end after graduation. You are encouraged to stay connected with your alma mater, teachers and schoolmates by forming an alumni group. The University welcomes enthusiastic alumni to form alumni groups based on years, Schools, academic programmes, study modes, geographical connections and so on. It will undoubtedly be a benefit to you, your schoolmates, and upcoming graduates to gather regularly with fellow alumni having similar educational backgrounds, interests, and social networks. The group you form will also contribute to your alma mater’s continuous development.

Alumni groups that desire to adopt the title of ‘Hong Kong Metropolitan University’ must comply with the Policies and Guidelines for HKMU Alumni Groups (Chinese version only) and apply as Affiliated Members of HKMUAA#.

#Currently, applications for affiliated membership of HKMUAA are only open to local alumni groups. Mainland and overseas alumni groups will not be admitted.

Kind reminder: points to consider before forming an alumni group

While it takes only a few steps to form an alumni group, it is a long term commitment to your alma mater and fellow alumni. We suggest that you consider the following:

  • Am I an HKMU (or previous OUHK) alumnus/ alumna#?
  • Do I have enough time to manage the group?
  • Do I have alumni friends with a common cause and who are willing to commit and contribute to the group?
  • Can I come up with a feasible plan to ensure the sustainable growth of the group; for example, how to recruit new members?

#HKMU alumni are our graduates, or those who have obtained at least five credits at the University and have terminated studies for five consecutive semesters.
