Alumni & Friends

Welcome Physical Sciences Alumni and Friends!

This website is to provide you with information and resources to help you stay connected to the PSD community. With over 7,000 graduate alumni worldwide, we can provide you with information to keep you informed of upcoming events happening in cities all around the globe, along with information about current research being done by our students and faculty right here on campus.

At the University of Chicago Alumni & Friends Online Community you can update your address, learn about lectures, and network with your fellow graduates of the division and the University.

You can now read an electronic version of the newsletter for Chicago’s physical sciences alumni, Inquiry. Graduates of the Department of Chemistry will be interested to see that their alumni newsletter, Chemists Club, is now also online.

Whether you’re planning a visit to Chicago or want to see if anything is going on in your home city, the University campus and events calendar lists lectures and events that are sure to be of interest. Please consider dropping in for a visit if you’re in the neighborhood. We’d love to see you and hear about what’s happening in your world.

The generosity of alumni and friends of the Physical Sciences Division makes possible the groundbreaking research and teaching of Chicago’s scientists. Gifts to the PSD support graduate students, fund the renovation of laboratories, allow us to recruit and retain the most outstanding faculty, and help advance the physical sciences in countless other ways. To find out how you can contribute, see Supporting the Physical Sciences.
