The identity of the VPA can be defined by the experiences, history, and successes of our more than 22,000 active alumni.

Get Involved

VPA’s goal is to create an environment for collaboration with and between alumni to enrich all of our shared educational and professional aspirations. There are a number of ways to get involved with VPA; collaborating, volunteering, and giving are just a few. To get involved, contact the VPA Office of Advancement at 315.443.7095 or .

    • Collaborate
      VPA recognizes that the knowledge and skills of our alumni have been honed by great personal effort and diverse working experiences. These are tremendously valuable and essential to providing a rich, real-world context to our current student body and prospective students alike. We invite you to explore with us the ways you may be interested collaborating with us. The best examples of collaboration are ones in which students and alumni (or their companies) all benefit in meaningful ways.
    • Volunteer
      Volunteering can take many forms. Mentoring, speaking to students on or off campus, or recruiting as a VPA alumni ambassador are just some of the essential ways to enhance your own experience and that of students, faculty, and the entire college and University community. The VPA Connect affords students the opportunity to meet with active members of our alumni network living and working around the globe. Alumni offer career guidance and advice, provide insight into the current internship and job markets in their industries, assist with interview preparation, and more. Interested in becoming a mentor?
