The CU Alumni Affairs Office

The Cooper Union Alumni Office is not part of the CUAA. It is a department within the college that the CUAA partners with to support both the Cooper Union and the alumni. The Office of Alumni Affairs and Development works to inspire others to come back and give back to The Cooper Union, through their time, effort, and financial support as our partners for a better future.  They partner with the CUAA on fundraising for the school, numerous events, and communications with alumni. They also provide a searchable on-line alumni directory.
