Stay connected with your classmates and support Concordia-Chicago’s ministry and mission.

Expand your network and deepen your commitment to your alma mater. 

Concordia University Chicago’s Alumni Association was established by the Class of 1914 to encourage alumni connections as well as to support the school’s ministry. More than 100 years later our alumni program continues this mission of its more than 41,000 graduates.  

Celebrating the Class of 2020

CUC’s Alumni Association celebrated the Class of 2020 this spring with a few special gifts since we could not gather in person.

Limited, one-of-a-kind T-shirts began shipping to homes the week of June 15 (to those who ordered by May 22). A diploma cover was also provided to every spring candidate along with some spirit gear.

Questions about your gift? Contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 888-258-6773 or

Be sure to post photos, like Teagan Dunning BA '20, when you receive your package with #CUGrad.

The Alumni Association Annual Meeting is a revitalized tradition to help graduates stay connected with our alma mater wherever they serve and lead. Meet current Board of Directors (below), gather updates about exciting University plans, and learn about growing membership benefits.
