Bank Street Alumni Relations Office: Who We Are & What We Do

Eric Gutierrez, Bank Street College of Education Alumni Relations

At Bank Street’s Alumni Relations Office, we make sure our alumni can engage and re-engage with their alma mater and with each other through an active Alumni Association. We communicate with regularity, plan social and networking events, and offer volunteer and professional development opportunities.

Alumni Relations is important to a College like ours—alumni support is the key to our success and longevity. Our alumni are the school’s ambassadors and the best promoters of high-quality teaching and learning to prospective students and the local community; they spread the story of what it means to be Bank Street students who carry our ideals throughout their professional lives.

Our alumni also support the school by contributing their time, talent, and/or financial resources for the betterment of the school. The tuition for a private education like Bank Street does not cover the total cost for a student, which is why we rely on the generous contributions of our alumni to enhance the Bank Street student experience. These alumni contributions are greatly needed and much appreciated.
