Our Vision: One Campus. For a Lifetime.

Alumni Göttingen is an international and intercultural community of alumni, students, relatives and friends of the University of Göttingen. As a non-profit Association, we make contacts, create a global network and advocate for the future of the University: for equal opportunities in academic education and personal development, in scientific progress and in the exchange of knowledge. Our motto is: Together for the common good of society.

Staying inquisitive and curious for a lifetime.

Science never stops researching – just as you never stop learning. We at the Alumni Göttingen Association are therefore constantly and enthusiastically collecting exciting information: What is currently happening in research? How do other alumni work and live after their studies? How can you take part in the virtual lecture series or the sustainability conference?
We know: Curiosity is a powerful driving force for inquisitive people who want to broaden their horizons. Our alumni listen to the latest podcasts from Göttingen scientists, stay up to date with publications and take part exclusively in events.

Feel the inspiration for a lifetime.

We all remember professors from our student days who inspired us. Their passionate engagement with science set a professional course for one or the other. As an alumni association, we create a place where you can meet inspiring role models and like-minded people even after your studies.
We are convinced: motivating personalities with impulses stimulate new thinking. Our Alumnae Conference (women's conference) and our mentoring by alumni for students inspire and motivate them to take the next step.

Be connected for a lifetime.

Göttingen lives through its cafes and bars, the parks and its people. Thanks to its students, it is a young city with one of the oldest universities in the country. Those who study in Göttingen opt for all of this and more: On campus, friendships grow and shared memories emerge that make people strong for life.

We believe: Our association builds a bridge between your past and today – so that you keep your most beautiful memories alive and add new ones. That is why we connect thousands of Göttingen alumni from all over the world on our Alumni-Day and in our regional networks.


Us and the SDGs

“In Publica Commoda” means, among other things, actively participating in the creation of a humane, tolerant and peaceful world and reducing disadvantages – all of this is reflected in the sustainability goals of the United Nations.

Sustainability is a topic that will not be missing in our future alumni work. We do not want to greenwash or follow a trend without reflection. As a pioneer in German-wide alumni work, our goal is to create clarity and transparency. We will disclose at any time how we are pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals as alumni and as a university.
