Alum... - what?

The term alumni (m., sing.: alumnus) or alumnae (w., sing.: alumna) has Latin roots and means "pupil" or "nourished one". In the past, foster children and pupils at convent schools were referred to as alumni. Over time, the term evolved to refer to graduates of a university or similar educational institution, as they also benefit from their "alma mater" (nurturing mother) and her care. To simplify matters, the term "alumni" has become established in the terminology used to refer to several graduates.

Reasons for joining the HRW Alumni network?

In addition to networking opportunities, we are developing a range of services from which you can benefit both personally and professionally. This includes information on industries and trends, further education and training, support with career issues and commitment to students and your HRW.
