Welcome to the UEF Alumni Network!

The objective of our alumni outreach and engagement activities is to keep in touch with our alumni. All current and former students and employees of the University of Kuopio, the University of Joensuu and the University of Eastern Finland are welcome to join our ever-expanding alumni network.

Already now, our existing alumni constitute a strong and diverse network of academic experts – even by international comparison. Our alumni will continue to play an important role in the university’s success story also in the future.

Do you have an idea on how to improve our education to better correspond to working life needs? Is there a research topic in your field that could become a project for our students? Would you like to become a mentor or share insights about your career in the university’s events?

These themes, and many others, are on the agenda when we interact with our alumni.
