Get Involved

Your relationship with the University of Minnesota doesn’t end once you graduate. As an alumnus you can stay involved in a variety of ways.


Pre-Departure Orientation

The China Office provides information to new students and parents through pre-departure orientations that take place once a year in Beijing and Shanghai. We are always looking for alumni volunteers to share their stories about learning and living at the University.

International Recruitment Fairs & Information Sessions

We are always on the lookout for alumni volunteers to help our U of M representatives at student information sessions and international fairs in China. Please view our events page for the upcoming schedule of international visits and events.

Organize a Reunion

Whether you graduated last year or 10 years ago, why not think about organizing a reunion for your former classmates in China? We rely on individuals to volunteer as reunion organizers, but the China Office can provide the support you need to coordinate your reunion.



Give a Careers Talk

Come and share your experience with current students at our Career Talk events, which take place in July and August in China.

Share Internship and Employment Opportunities

Can you or your company offer current students the opportunity to get hands-on experience in an industry they are passionate about? Do you or your company have vacancies to fill? Who better to employ than current Minnesota students or fellow graduates! You can advertise your vacancy by Contacting Us (link of contact us page).
