We have a network of 30,000 alumni in 190 countries and we want to keep in touch with all of you. Our diverse alumni community provides a lifelong link to the School and each other. There are a number of ways that you can get involved.
- Attend alumni events
We hold alumni events all over the world (virtually and face to face), which alumni, students, staff and friends of the School are welcome to attend. These events range from Chapter meetings to gala dinners. Find out about upcoming events and past events near you on the Alumni Events page. View photos from past events on our Flickr page.
- Blog for us
The Alumni Blog is where you find out the latest news from the alumni and School community. You can contribute to the blog by sharing your profile, writing a project report, or updating us on your career achievements. See the Alumni Blog for examples of news and articles. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to write for us.
- Be a part of an Alumni Chapter
Our worldwide network of alumni chapters are made up of volunteers from our alumni and distance learning community. Being involved with your local chapter is a great way to meet old classmates and make new contacts. Find a chapter near you.
- Donate to the LSHTM Fund
Donations to the LSHTM Fund (formerly the Alumni Fund) enable the School to continue to improve health worldwide. This year donations to the LSHTM Fund will be used to fund scholarships. For information on giving to the LSHTM Fund including making tax-deductible gifts visit our Support Us section.
- Mentoring and supporting students
E-mentoring is open to all LSHTM students and alumni, with students connecting with mentors via our online community. Mentors will volunteer their time, committing to at least three 45 minute (face-to-face, telephone, or video calling) meetings with their mentee throughout the academic year. If you would like to take part, please sign up to LSHTM Connect.
