The IIT Alumni Association coordinates a range of programs and activities with the goal of providing a variety of events that have an appeal to a diverse alumni audience. Many events are free or have a nominal registration fee. Throughout the year, alumni are invited to attend events on campus, programs in the greater Chicagoland area, receptions at professional meetings, and regional alumni chapter gatherings across the country and around the globe. Please come join us at one of our upcoming activities!
