Alumni Relations

Services to Eastman Faculty and Staff

Keeping connections with alumni strong is everyone’s job and privilege at Eastman. The Office of Alumni Relations is here to help faculty and staff stay closely connected with our graduates. Call us at x4-1111 or email us for help with any of the following needs.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership!

Please help us keep the alumni database up to date to ensure continuous communication with alumni. If you receive a mailing address or email address change from an alumnus/a, please forward it to

Alumni are encouraged to update their own records directly via The Meliora Collective or the Alumni Update Form.

Faculty and staff who hold Eastman degrees may search The Meliora Collective for graduates’ contact information.  Faculty and staff are invited to join The Collective as this network is meant to connect the entire UR and Eastman communities.

Many departments keep alumni well informed through regularly published newsletters and other special mailings. To receive an up-to-date mailing list or set of labels for alumni of your department or studio, please contact us at least ten (10) business days in advance of your drop date. Please note the following guidelines and requirements:

  • Address labels or lists are released after receipt of a sample of the mailing by the Alumni Relations Coordinator.
  • Like all other University- and School-sanctioned mailings, they must be factually correct and not pornographic, racist, or sexist. (See the complete Alumni Records Access Policy for more information.)

The Meliora Collective is an online platform for alumni, students, and the University of Rochester community that fosters professional exploration throughout the various stages of life. It provides one space for all to network, and participate in mentorship as a mentor or mentee, regardless of class year, background, industry, or school.

In The Collective, you don’t need to accept friends or connections—everyone who has joined is active and ready to engage with one another. Sign in using LinkedIn to populate your professional information or use your Facebook or e-mail address to complete the process. It’s that easy. Join now!

Graduates often share their personal and professional news with their teacher or department.  Please help us update records and spread the good news further by forwarding copies of their letters and/or emails to 

We will ensure that the news appears in the Alumni Notes section of Eastman Notes and EastmanMAIL. In return, when we learn of the accomplishments of Eastman alumni, we will forward the news to the appropriate department(s).

Eastman remains a special home for so many of our alumni. Those who return to serve their alma mater as guest lecturers, to present master classes, or to perform, deserve a warm welcome and a tangible sign of appreciation.

To request an appreciation gift for a visiting alumnus/a, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at x4-1111 at least three (3) business days in advance of the alumnus/a’s arrival.
