From Alumni Relations
As the New Year kicks off, we want to make sure you’re tapping into all the alumni resources available to you as a member of the Stanford GSB community. Over the next few issues, we’ll be sprinkling in reminders on how to supercharge your connections.

Let’s dive in with two quick wins:
  1. Update Your Alumni Directory Profile
    Make sure your contact details are up-to-date. The directory isn’t just a list — it’s your map to classmates, nearby alumni, and industry connections. Search by name, keywords, or use filters to broaden your alumni circle.

  2. Activate Your Stanford Alumni Groups Account
    This is your one-stop shop for all alumni-led groups and events! Don’t miss out on the chance to connect at regional, industry, identity, and class events hosted by our incredible regional chapters and other alumni groups.

What’s Next?

We plan to share a few of our favorite ways to be in-the-know about all things GSB. Warning—you may have a sudden urge to return to campus and set up your remote office in Town Square!  

We look forward to partnering with you to make your alumni experience truly unforgettable. Here’s to a year filled with exciting connections and shared successes!
