Alumni in North America

Alumni in the United States and Canada

Lead by our ANU North American Liaison Office (NALO) located at the Embassy of Australia in Washington, DC our staff is here to assist alumni and encourage engagement with the University in numerous ways.

NALO assists with the planning alumni activities across the United States and Canada.  We are always seeking to connect with alumni either individually and virtually by offering social and professional networking opportunities. 

The office also facilitates the exchange of information between the University and alumni about educational and professional opportunities for undergraduates, such as internships and exchange programs with other universities, government and industry.

All alumni and friends are welcome to participate in ANU activities. If you would like more information about the ANU alumni activities in North America, please contact

Alumni in New York City

In 2019, the ANU New York City Alumni Network (NYCAN) was established by a group of alumni volunteers.  The purpose of the network is to foster relationships between fellow ANU alumni that are living, working or traveling through New York.

We would encourage you to stay in touch and join the network to make sure you are invited to local activities - which are currently being held virtually and hopefully in person in the future.  Please keep your details up to date with ANU and be sure to join the LinkedIn group for additional updates.

The NYCAN plans to stay in touch with fellow alumni in 2021 through a quarterly newsletter and hopefully will be able to see each other in person later in the year.
