About the Association

What is the IUJ Alumni Association
All graduates of IUJ automatically join the IUJ Alumni Association at the time of graduation, after paying the membership fee. The Alumni Association rules are noted for your reference. Former Exchange and special students of IUJ are welcomed to join the association as Honorary members and pay the same one-time fee. The Alumni Association elects and Executive Council based in Tokyo but with members world wide, and has Regional Chapters world wide.

Alumni Association Executive Council
Who are your elected representatives and what do they do?

Class Representatives
Class Reps are chosen just before graduation. In principle one from each school should be located in Japan and one from overseas. Two to four representatives per class are appointed. Class Reps help campus stay in contact with their classmates, and are the first for campus to turn to when we need support or ideas or help from that year’s group. Who are the current Class Reps?

Regional Chapters
Beginning in May 2006, IUJ formalized its network of Alumni Association Regional Chapters. In cities world-wide, those that had volunteered to be “Chapter Leaders” earlier were contacted and asked to accept nominations to become the official “kick-off” Chair or Vice Chair. The goal was to create a clear network of Chapters in preparation for the 25th anniversary celebrations and events, and to strengthen our growing network which now extends to over 130 countries and territories. This goal was surpassed. Now, looking to the 40th anniversary we are aiming at increasing our engage with our chapter leaders and the alumni in their area with the EC taking the lead.

IUJ Alumni Association Chapters are formed in cities where we have 4 or more alumni. They select a Chair and Vice Chair, and are supported by Chapter Supporters as described below. Chapters follow the set guidelines and participate in various activities.

  • The Chair is the main contact person for campus and the association members, and trigger for events for alumni in that city.
  • The Vice Chair is the substitute for the Chair or the backup, or main person the Chair can consult for ideas, opinions, etc.
  • Chapter Supporters are former Chapter Leader volunteers who are now one of the 2 main contacts, but the first people the Chair can go to for help for any event arrangements, etc.

Where we cannot have a formal Alumni Chapter due to lack of numbers (3 or fewer alumni), City Contacts are our main contact for their area.

Here are the Current Chapter Chairs and Vice Chairs for 55 cities/areas in
42 countries  (including grouped Latin America countries). We are waiting on confirmation for another 10 cities at this time.
In principle the Chairs and Vice Chairs will serve until they announce their replacements and inform campus.
