Young Alumni Network

Are you unsure what is next after graduation? How to start or where to start? Do you know who may be able to help you take the next step? Increase your networks by becoming part of the Young Alumni Network.

Edith Cowan University’s Young Alumni Network (ECU YAN) was created especially for young alumni aged between 21 and 35, or those who have graduated with an ECU degree in the past ten years. We understand that going into the workforce after university can be daunting and ECU YAN can help you have a smooth transition from university life to working life.

Most importantly, we want you to stay connected with your alma mater as we can achieve a lot together!

Executive Committee

The Young Alumni Network is governed by an Executive Committee that is staffed with enthusiastic and passionate volunteers who are committed to giving back to their alma mater by running activities, events and workshops that will benefit ECU’s young alumni cohort. They meet regularly and provide the strategic direction of the Network.

ECU YAN’s current Executive Committee members are:

The Executive Committee is expanding, and currently accepting Expressions of Interest from our young alumni cohort. All types of study backgrounds are welcome, and those who have experience in organising events, social media, creative writing and marketing would have a great opportunity to exercise their leadership skills.

If you are under the age of 35, and an Executive position is of interest to you, please email Alumni Relations outlining your reasons for joining and the skills you could offer the committee.

Ambassador Programme

The Executive Committee is supported by a small team of volunteers who, whilst committed to the development and success of the Young Alumni Network, are not able to regularly attend meetings and events. Their diversity of thought and experience play an important role in ensuring the success of the programme. Please email Alumni Relations if you are interested in joining this programme.

Why be part of the Young Alumni Network?

The benefits are:

  • Being invited to events tailored to you that will benefit you in the area of professional and personal development;
  • Developing your professional network with alumni who are leaders and professionals in their careers;
  • Accessing a range of opportunities to meet and create long lasting friendships with friends of ECU, staff members and the wider young alumni cohort;
  • Socialising and meeting with your former ECU colleagues at social events; and
  • Being an inspiration to final year students as they prepare themselves to move into the workforce.
