Alumni of Color Network

The URI Alumni of Color Network (ACN) was founded in 2007 to provide opportunities for interaction and collaboration among alumni, students, staff, and faculty of color. The ACN provides professional and personal development, networking, advocacy, and community-building opportunities. These include:
  • Career networking opportunities, including its annual spring forum where alumni panelists from a range of careers speak to students about their experiences and challenges as professionals of color.
  • Personal and professional mentoring in which URI alumni, faculty, or staff members act as role models and offer guidance to current students or recent graduates.
  • Social events, including receptions and theater evenings.
  • Service and outreach to other communities of color.
