An Early Gathering of Alumni

Alumni are an important part of the Excelsior College community. Since the College’s inception as the Regents External Degree Program and through name changes, they have supported the institution’s goals and worked to strengthen ties among outside communities, students, alumni, and the College. Above, alumni meet in 1978 in New York City.

To gather alumni more formally to discuss Excelsior and its alumni presence, the Alumni Association was formed by the mid-1980s and holds an annual meeting, typically with the newest graduates.
