What do we do?

The OISE Alumni Association (OISEAA) acts as the alumni voice on matters that affect OISE's community. Together, we create the events and experiences that foster a lasting bond between alumni and alma mater. 

The OISEAA provides a meaningful volunteer experience in governance, planning and community building for its members. Over 100,000 alumni stand to benefit by developing and promoting themselves through OISE. 

Why not get involved? Expand your network and skills today.

Past and annual projects

Planning OISE's Future 

The OISE Academic Plan 2017-2022 — created by and for the community — would not have been complete without contributions from alumni, who generated innovative ideas to help lead OISE towards its best future.

Championing Grad Students

The Alumni Association generously created the OISE Alumni Association Doctoral Fellowship through a matched donation. The award provides financial support for qualifying graduate students, while building bridges between students and alumni who volunteer.

Enabling Mentorship 

Led by the Alumni Association, the OISE Mentorship Program boasts over 450 student and alumni participants annually — and the program continues to grow with the help of alumni volunteers! 

Awarding Student Leadership 

The U of T Cressy Awards recognize graduating students for making outstanding extra-curricular and leadership contributions. Each year, members of the Alumni Association act as the OISE selection committee and coordinate efforts to celebrate our award winners. 

Delivering Alumni Awards 

In 2019, a team from the Alumni Association revived the Leaders and Legends Awards — a set of six distinguished awards that identify and honour alumni who are making an impact around the world.
