The Catholic University of America Alumni Association was founded on October 1, 1895 with 88 members. In 1900 there were 211 members, and in 1927 the first alumni reunion was held in New York City. Since then, the CUA Alumni Association has grown dramatically in its scope and diversity. Today there are over 83,000 members of the Association in the U.S. and around the world.

The mission of the CUA Alumni Association is to engage alumni in promoting The Catholic University of America. Members of the Association are active in recruiting new students, participating in the Alumni Career Network, and leading local Chapters of the Association. Thousands of alumni return to campus every year for Cardinal Weekend, formerly known as Homecoming and Reunions Weekend.

If you have attended CUA for at least one semester, you are automatically a lifetime member of the CUA Alumni Association. As members of the Association, alumni enjoy several benefits including an online alumni directory, library borrowing privileges, campus bookstore discounts via email, and more.

Leadership of the CUA Alumni Association is vested in the Board of Governors and its Executive Committee. Board members, who represent more than 83,000 living alumni, come from a variety of geographic areas, class years, and degree programs.
