The Alumni Association of Eastern Mennonite Seminary was organized in 1974 when a constitution was adopted. In 1992 the constitutions of the undergraduate and seminary alumni associations were modified and merged into one constitution. The members of the EMU Alumni Association include: graduates of Eastern Mennonite University, students who have completed one full semester (9 credit hours) at the seminary and graduate level, students who have completed one full year (24 credit hours) at the undergraduate level, full-time members of the faculty and staff, trustees and associate trustees.
The purpose of the association is to promote and encourage fellowship and friendship among its members; to foster goodwill on the part of its members and others toward Eastern Mennonite University; to inspire alumni in continuing education opportunities and support them in their professions and ministries; and in general to aid and support institutional advancement in student recruitment and retention, fundraising and scholarships.
The annual meeting of the EMU Alumni Association is held on campus during the annual EMU Homecoming.
