The Office of Alumni Affairs and Development seek out people and organizations who can help The Cooper Union and its students bridge the gap between what we have and what is possible. We work to inspire others to come back and give back to Cooper, through their time, effort, and financial support as our partners for a better future. We hope you find the information you need on this site or you can contact us if there is something further that you would like to discuss at (212) 353-4164, alumni@cooper.edu, development@cooper.edu or visit the staff directory to find the appropriate contact.

The Cooper Union Alumni Association (CUAA) is an all-volunteer organization that provides a vital link between the alumni and the institution, building a strong body of support to preserve, protect, and promote The Cooper Union. The major goals of the CUAA are to provide service to alumni, to provide service to the school, and to recognize alumni accomplishments. These goals are accomplished by a year-round program of events and activities, a Class Representatives organization, a regional chapters organization, a variety of online communications, an annual presentation of awards and a group of alumni elected representatives to the Board of Trustees. The CUAA continually evaluates its structure, programs and services to promote exceptional communication with alumni, ever-expanding inclusiveness and ongoing growth in Association capabilities.
