Biographical / Historical

The University of Denver Alumni Association was organized in 1906. The earliest material in the Alumni Relations collection is from 1914, with the minutes of the Alumni Association. In 1916, an Alumnae Association was established for female graduates and contributed minutes to the collection until the late 1920s. By 1927 the Alumni Association was large enough that it needed an on-campus coordinating entity, and an Alumni Office was created.

Over the years the alumni of the University have been active in every capital campaign through the Alumni Fund. Alumni Relations also manages reunions and outreach. There are eleven alumni associations associated with current schools, and nine regional groups which sponsor events and maintain contacts with alumni in the area.
