International Alumni Network

In 2000, the Alumni Council launched the International Alumni Network (IAN) to expand the TC community to encompass graduates living outside the United States. The IAN is comprised of representatives from countries in which we have active TC alumni. The IAN provides a much-needed link between our overseas alumni and the college. If you are interested in connecting with alumni in a country other than the US, and there is no IAN Country Representative listed below, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 212-678-3215 or

If you are interested in serving as an IAN Representative for your country and would like more information, please read the job description here. To volunteer, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 212-678-3215 or We hope you will decide to volunteer! Please contact the Office of Alumni Relations if you have any questions.

Alumni Council International Outreach Committee

The International Outreach Committee is the committee of the Alumni Association that focuses on  (re)connecting TC's overseas alumni.  The committee recruits alumni outside the U.S. to serve as Country Representatives for the International Alumni Network (IAN) and supports them in organizing locally attractive alumni activities.  The committee also promotes events for current international students, to encourage them to stay connected to TC after they have returned to their home countries.  The committee works with the Offices of Alumni Relations and International Student Services.
