Types of Groups
A chapter is a geographic-based group located in areas
with 1,000 or more alumni. Chapters host regular meetings, diverse events and have an organized leadership team.
Society: A society is an interest-based group, representing 1,000
or more alumni, who share academic, social, cultural or other interests. They further the mission of the
Alumni Association and often support the mission and
vision of a college or academic
Network: Networks can be geographic- or
interest-based groups. They are similar to chapters and societies but are
less formally organized and represent fewer than 1,000 alumni.
This contact is an alumnus residing abroad
who serves as the primary contact for the Alumni Association in their
country, assists other alumni interested in re-locating or visiting the
country, and may represent the university at local events.
Project Group Evolution
Project group evolution is a multi-year plan to restructure the
relationship between alumni groups and the USF Alumni Association to
focus on the University’s key alumni markets. The primary changes
include a clearer framework for alumni group activities and well-defined
support and vision as it relates to the Alumni Association’s mission. Visit the project group evolution program page for more information about this initiative.
