Alumni Engagement & Resources

As graduates, you will always remain an important part of the Saybrook community. We invite you to stay informed about current happenings at Saybrook, remain connected, and share your stories of achievement with us so that we can celebrate them with you. It is our aim to provide you with rich opportunities for engagement, resources to support you as you make positive change in the world, and opportunities for you to connect with current and prospective students to encourage the next generation of changemakers. We are a stronger and more vibrant community together, and we can’t wait to hear from you and see you at an event sometime soon.

Alumni Council Charter Adopted – Seeking Co-Chairs

About the Alumni Council

The Alumni Council offers a vehicle for intellectual and social engagement for all Saybrook University alumni, inclusive of alumni from all previous iterations of the University and its educational partners, including: the Humanistic Psychology Institute; the Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center; and the Leadership Institute of Seattle. The council is designed by alumni, for alumni, and it is our intention that this body will provide the structure for lasting alumni engagement at Saybrook.

Please join us as we work to:

  • Connect alumni through regional gatherings for professional and social enrichment
  • Create a vehicle for alumni representation on Saybrook University committees
  • Build tradition through signature events and alumni representation at Residential Conferences
  • Provide a regular time & place for alumni to come together virtually

Giving Back to Saybrook

Monetary Gifts

Gifts from alumni are a vital resource to Saybrook, and a wonderful way to help ensure access to our programs for future generations. If you would like to make a contribution to support new program development, scholarships for students, or simply help in whatever way is needed, please make an online donation here.

Alumni Legacy Scholarship Referrals

Aside from monetary gifts, one of the most impactful ways that you can give back to Saybrook is to recommend the next generation of practitioner-scholars and leaders to our institution. Our goal is to recruit exceptional students like you who will continue on the humanistic tradition of Saybrook while forging the pathway to innovation, transformation, and discovery.

Complete this short survey to refer a friend, family member, or colleague who is interested in learning more about our degree programs and if they enroll in one of our degree programs, they will receive a $1,000 Alumni Referral Scholarship for their first year in the program. The scholarship will be awarded in $500 installments over their first two semesters.

Surveys

It’s of great importance for Saybrook to be able to track the success of our graduates. Periodically we ask graduates to take a very simple survey. The results of the survey will allow Saybrook to enhance and develop programs that will best serve you and our current students.

If you did not receive a survey this year, but would like to provide feedback on future alumni engagement initiatives, please contact Anthony Molinar at [email protected]
