In partnership between the Office of Alumni Relations and the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Initiatives, alumni groups were established in 2023 as a way to connect and engage Juilliard alumni with the school, other alumni, and students around common interests, identity, location, and experiences. Alumni groups may be formed to expand opportunities for networking, resource-sharing, professional development, and connecting with students—all while deepening their relationship with Juilliard in a supportive and inclusive environment. Collaborative partners include the Offices of the President and General Counsel; the development, public affairs, finance, student development, and liberal arts departments; and faculty and alumni.
To learn more about alumni groups at Juilliard—including how to submit a proposal to create your own alumni group and to see current alumni groups at Juilliard—please visit the main Alumni Groups page.
