NYU Alumni and Friends Connect

September 15, 2021

All NYU alumni are invited to join the NYU Violet Network, a professional mentoring and networking platform for the entire NYU Community. There are currently more than 20,000 students and alumni on the Violet Network, making it easy for alumni to mentor current students and recent grads, and network with alumni from all over the world.

In addition to mentoring, the Violet Network platform facilitates discussions, features job postings, and includes an opportunity to find fellow alumni through the “Explore the Community” feature. A newly expanded feature, groups, connects alumni based on affinity or interests, location, and now, industry.

The newly-launched Industry groups have been created and focus on arts and entertainment, law, and engineering and allow alumni an opportunity to offer guidance to NYU students interested in exploring these fields as a career. In addition, alumni will be able to extend professional expertise on emerging industry trends with fellow alumni; share links to favorite articles or scholarly journals; and learn about upcoming industry related events and programs.

Another new addition to the nearly 30 current group offerings is the Athletics group, hosted by NYU Athletics. Joining this group will allow individuals to learn more about NYU Athletics and offer support to student-athletes looking for career focused assistance. In addition to connecting with fellow alumni and students, the Athletics group features information on upcoming live stream events and access to NYU Athletics programming.
