We are dedicated to developing the tri-state communities of alumni from all the schools of the University of Chicago and all of us are volunteers.

The common purpose of the Club is to:

  • Provide opportunities for all alumni, parents and friends of University of Chicago to serve as the University’s advocate, articulating its role and direction
  • Encourage the Alumni Community’s intellectual enrichment and professional growth through forums and presentations
  • Elevate the stature of the University in our geographic region through club programming
  • Create an open community of like-minded individuals with a common experience to enrich life in our region

In addition to our current successful programs, we would like to expand the types of opportunities and events we offer. If you are interested in making an impact, please contact your Alumni Club of New York City Volunteer Co-Chairs: Jennifer Glickel, AB'08, at, or Jessica Ansehl Steinberg, AB '05, at
