Are you planning to organise a reunion?

We can support you through this process and importantly help you to connect with your cohort.

First steps

We recommend starting to plan your reunion at least three months (ideally about eight months) in advance of the reunion date to allow plenty of time.

We also encourage you to establish a reunion organising committee consisting of about two to three members from your cohort.

You might find it helpful to refer to this Monash University Alumni Reunions guide as a start.

Our services

We can provide you with professional advice and guidance to make the process of organising your reunion easier.

We are able to assist you to communicate with your cohort about the reunion by:

  • sending out reunion invitations on your behalf to alumni in your cohort
  • posting on our social media channels
  • publishing reunion details on this web page (see above under "Upcoming Reunions")

If you need help with identifying your cohort, we can assist with this as well. The Graduation Ceremonies Database on the publicly available Monash University Archives website is a valuable resource for finding a list of your cohort.

Your support

We request your support with encouraging alumni from your cohort to update their contact details with us to assist with future communications to your cohort.

We also encourage you to send reunion photos to us so we can share these more broadly with the alumni community through our channels.
