Alumni Affairs

Continuing Connections

Lander University's alumni live and work across the United States and around the world. They are successful in business, politics, education, medicine, science, the arts, and many other areas. They are actively involved with their families and communities, and they continue to be an active part of their alma mater.

All Lander graduates and former students who completed at least 30 semester hours at Lander are part of the Lander Alumni Association. The Association, formed in 1885, is celebrating over 130 years of service to the university and its alumni.
