Florida Atlantic University has more than 111,000 alumni living throughout the world. Over 75% of graduates live in the State of Florida. Beyond Florida, the largest numbers of alumni live in Georgia, North Carolina, California, New York, Texas and Virginia.
The Office of Alumni Relations represents and promotes alumni and University interests by facilitating on-going relationships between FAU and its alumni and by fostering loyalty and support for FAU. Highlights include:
The FAU National Alumni Association began a paid membership program in September 2008. There are currently more than 2,000 members, which includes close to 800 lifetime and 400 Student Alumni Association members.
As of September 30, 2009, the alumni association had 515 annual memberships, a total that stands 21.46 percent above the goal for this fiscal year.
Comparing first quarter results from FY09 to first quarter results for FY10, the association has realized a 71.1 percent increase in memberships.
Membership operating revenues have increased by 58.8 percent compared to this time last year ($9,150 after the first quarter in FY09 — $14,530 after the first quarter in FY10).
Marleen and Harold Forkas Alumni Center was
completed as the permanent “home away from home” for
FAU’s growing alumni family and a gathering place for a
variety of University-wide traditions and celebrations. The center
immediately became a focal point of activity on the Boca Raton
campus. Opened in the fall of 2008, it is located adjacent to the
future site of FAU’s stadium and
Innovation Village residential and retail area.
