As is common practice at universities in the English-speaking world, German universities have recently engaged in efforts to establish and maintain contact with former graduates. Unlike universities in the United States, however, the main purpose of these efforts is not to solicit donations. Instead, the primary interest lies in gradually building and expanding an elaborate network of relations between current students, alumni and faculty. This network functions as a valuable resource for upper-year students recent graduates – alumni with professional experience can provide useful insight and practical advice for the transition into the workforce. This is especially helpful for students interested in careers other than teaching.

As the University of Freiburg’s English Department continually seeks to improve its undergraduate and graduate programs, alumni are encouraged to submit feedback regarding the structure, content and organization of their former courses of study.

In order to foster a sense of community between current students, academic staff and alumni, the English Department frequently organizes interesting events and activities, such as the celebrations for the Department’s 200th anniversary in July 2008, and always participates in Alumni Day, held regularly by the university.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the English Department’s alumni organization, please contact the head of administration, Dr. Gert Fehlner.

We look forward to building an ever-growing network with you!
