Alumi association


From the Association President’s Desk

Did you know that Rockford University has had an Alumni Association for 147 years?

Since 1872, alumnae and later alumni recognized the importance of supporting and promoting their alma mater. What Alumni of today may not realize is that even though we are called an ‘Alumni Association’ all Alumni are members.

The Association is led by a board whose mission is ‘to connect and engage current and future alumni for the advancement of Rockford University.’ We take our responsibilities seriously and want to serve you effectively. Send an e-mail with questions/comments/suggestions to
