AIESEC


imageAIESEC

AIESEC is the world's largest non-profit student-run organization. It is an international non-governmental not-for-profit organization that provides young people with leadership development and cross-cultural global internship and volunteer exchange experiences across the globe, with a focus to empower young people so they can make a positive impact on society. The AIESEC network includes approximately 70,000 members in 127 countries and territories. It is the largest youth-run organization in the world.

AIESEC is a non-governmental organization in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), is affiliated with the UN DPI and UN's Office of the Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth, member of ICMYO, and is recognized by UNESCO. AIESEC's international headquarters are in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

AIESEC was originally a French acronym for Association internationale des étudiants en sciences économiques et commerciales (English: International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences); however, the full name is no longer officially used as members can now come from any university background.

The idea behind AIESEC started in 1938, when representatives from schools across Europe exchanged information about various programs and schools that specialized in business and economics. Students were carrying out internships in other countries. Mostly on their own initiative but it came to a standstill with the onslaught of World War II.

In 1944, the neutral Scandinavian countries were still exchanging students. In , Bertil Hedberg, an official at the , and students Jaroslav Zich (of Czechoslovakia), Jean Choplin (of France) and Stanislas Callens (of Belgium) founded AIESEC. This was the predecessor of AIESEC, which was officially founded in 1948. At the time, the organization's stated mission was “to expand the understanding of a nation by expanding the understanding of the individuals, changing the world one person at a time.”

Alumniportal Deutschland


imageAlumniportal Deutschland

Alumniportal Deutschland is a non-profit online social network of "Germany Alumni" – designed for anyone from around the world who has studied, researched, worked or completed a (further) training or a language course in Germany or at a German institution abroad. The portal is a networking platform for both the professional and private field. It is open to any and all international Germany Alumni, regardless of whether or not they received a scholarship from one of the many German scholarship organizations, participated in an organized study abroad program, or enrolled directly in an institution. The use of Alumniportal Deutschland is free for individuals and businesses.

The project is administered by a core group of five major German organizations, supported by strategic partners and financed by the German Federal Government.

The Alumniportal Deutschland is available in both English and German. The communication language within the community is arbitrary.

Alumniportal Deutschland offers Germany Alumni the opportunity to build and deepen their contacts to other Germany Alumni as well as to German and Germany-related institutions, organizations and businesses.

In addition to community features, the website offers an international job & career market, information on training programmes and events around the world, an editorial part with articles on culture, society, education science & research and economy as well as online German language training tools and webinars on current topics.

Alumniportal gives participating organizations access to a global network of contacts with a direct connection to Germany as an addition to their own alumni activities and recruiting efforts. The website enables businesses to connect to employees, experts, or potential partners.

Alumni relations efforts for study abroad and professional development organizations in Germany have historically been limited to each group reaching out to their specific alumni. However, approximately 80% of people from abroad who study or undertake professional training in Germany – a total of roughly 14,000 people per year – are “free movers”, organizing and financing their own program. Trying to get in touch with these free movers was a complicated and often fruitless effort.

Alumni association


An alumni association is an association of graduates or, more broadly, of former students (alumni). In the United Kingdom and the United States, alumni of universities, colleges, schools (especially independent schools), fraternities, and sororities often form groups with alumni from the same organization. These associations often organize social events, publish newsletters or magazines, and raise funds for the organization. Many provide a variety of benefits and services that help alumni maintain connections to their educational institution and fellow graduates. In the US, most associations do not require its members to be an alumnus of a university to enjoy membership and privileges.

Additionally, such groups often support new alumni, and provide a forum to form new friendships and business relationships with people of similar background.

Alumni associations are mainly organized around universities or departments of universities, but may also be organized among students that studied in a certain country. In the past, they were often considered to be the university's or school's old boy society (or old boys network). Today, alumni associations involve graduates of all age groups and demographics.

Alumni associations are often organized into chapters by city, region, or country.

Alumni associations can also include associations of former employees of a business. An alumnus of a company is a person who was formerly employed by it. These associations are growing in popularity and becoming an important part of a personal business network.

Bruin Alumni Association


The Bruin Alumni Association is a conservative group for alumni of University of California, Los Angeles. It has no official affiliation with the University of California or the official UCLA Alumni Association. It is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2005 by Andrew Jones, who graduated from UCLA in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and a minor in public policy. Jones runs the organization largely on his own with private donations.

The association has gained notoriety for its "Exposing UCLA's Radical Professors" initiative (UCLAProfs.com), which offered to pay students to inform on faculty "actively proselytizing their extreme views in the classroom, whether or not the commentary is relevant to the class topic." The association seeks to tackle what Jones alleges is a strong liberal bias (what he describes as a "cancer of political radicalism") at UCLA, by soliciting donations from alumni, then using the money to campaign against activist professors, the UCLA Alumni Association and administrators.

Although the group says it is concerned about radical professors of any political stripe, in its initial "Dirty 30" of teachers it names, all are identified only with left-wing or liberal causes. Jones, former chairman of UCLA's Bruin Republicans student group, was a firebrand conservative activist while a student at UCLA, active in Republican causes, and founder of the conservative campus publication the UCLA Criterion. As a student Jones was known as a controversial agitator, gaining notoriety for a 2003 publicity stunt called the "Affirmative Action Bake Sale" where he offered lower prices on baked goods to minority students, mirroring the preferences inherent in affirmative action itself.

As justification for exposing those he considers to be radical professors, Jones says, "One aspect of this radicalization, outlined [on the website], is an unholy alliance between anti-war professors, radical Muslim students, and a pliant administration. Working together, they have made UCLA a major organizing center for opposition to the War on Terror." Other issues common to the conservative cause the association finds objectionable are diversity and the related topic, affirmative action.

To assist in "exposing the most radical professors" at UCLA, the association offered students $100 to record classroom lectures of suspect faculty, $50 for notes and materials, and $10 for advisory and all professor-distributed materials. The offer was originally made on the association's website, asking them to report any "professor who just can't stop talking about President Bush, about the war in Iraq, about the Republican Party, or any other ideological issue."

Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association


imageChildren of Shingwauk Alumni Association

The Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association is a grassroots, community based inter-generational residential school survivor organization based in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario.

Prior to 1998 the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association (CSAA) operated as a grassroots community based organization and focused much of its efforts on organizing school reunions for former Shingwauk Indian Residential School students. These reunions invited former staff, students, and community members connected to the Shingwauk School to return to the School site, talk about their experiences, and connect with other members of the survivor community.

The Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association (CSAA) held its first official meeting in 1998 and established an office at Algoma University College in the same year. The Shingwauk Project and the CSAA also established the Shingwauk Healing Project in 1998, dedicated to sharing, healing and learning in relation to the legacy of residential schools.

The first Shingwauk reunion was held in 1981 at Algoma University College on the former site of the Shingwauk Indian Residential School. Ten years later, in 1991, the second Shingwauk reunion was held on the same site. Advertised as "Shingwauk Reunion 1991: 160th anniversary of Chief Shingwauk's Vision" the event resulted in hundreds of residential school survivors, community members, politicians, clergy, and residential school staff gathering at Algoma University College. The 1991 event also marked a shift in the discussion of life residential schools and many of the former students began to speak out about their experiences, including the abuse at the Shingwauk School.

The third gathering of the former students and staff of the Shingwauk School was held July 4–7, 1996. At this reunion the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association issued a "Declaration of the Shingwauk Reunion 1996" in which the former students pledged themselves to the fulfilling the vision of Chief Shingwauk and the ongoing work related to healing and education. This declaration and subsequent activities resulted in the formal establishment of the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association.

Concerned Alumni of Princeton


The Concerned Alumni of Princeton (CAP) was a group of politically conservative former Princeton University students that existed between 1972 and 1986. CAP was born in 1972 from the ashes of the Alumni Committee to Involve Itself Now (ACTION), which was founded in opposition to the college going coed in 1969. Some claim that CAP was founded to bring the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) back to the Princeton campus after the ROTC building was burned down by anti-war activists and the Princeton administration refused to rebuild it. However, the ROTC had returned to campus by the time CAP was founded. The primary motivation behind CAP was to limit the number of women admitted to the university. CAP also opposed affirmative action designed to increase minority attendance at the Ivy League institution. CAP also exhibited strong support for Princeton's eating clubs, which were male-only at the time.

The existence of the organization attracted wide notice in January 2006 during the nomination of Samuel Alito, who was a former CAP member, to the Supreme Court of the United States, as Alito included his membership in the organization on a job application to work in the Reagan administration in 1985. No mention of Alito has been found in CAP files, apart from his own written 1985 statement of membership. Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano was a founding member. Former Senator Bill Bradley, a liberal Democrat, was a member until 1973, when he resigned because of the tone of the organization's magazine, Prospect. Republican Senator Bill Frist, at the time a recent Princeton alumnus, having graduated in 1974, contributed to a report that labeled the organization as far-right and extremist.
