UP to launch official email service for its alumni

| Posted by UP Media and Public Relations Office

The University of the Philippines (UP) is proud of its vast academic community, especially its over 300,000 alumni. They include among their ranks outstanding leaders and professionals in the country and around the world who continue to make their mark in their respective fields.

UP is launching its Alumni Email Registration (AER), an online application platform on the UP System Office of Alumni Relations (UP OAR) website. The virtual launch of the AER, dubbed “Let’s KONEK: Taralets!” will be held on November 12, Friday, at 10:00 a.m. Manila standard time, via TVUP’s YouTube channel, and the official UP YouTube and Facebook page. The OAR hopes to bind this global UP community even more closely and keep communication lines between the University and its alumni.

The UP alumni email is a service created for bona fide UP alumni who have been verified by the UP OAR. UP alumni are provided with their very own UP alumni email account, @alum.up.edu.ph, which bears the mark of a proud Iskolar ng Bayan and reflects the alumni’s shared membership in the UP community.

In addition, the UP alumni email aims to serve as the gateway to many benefits in the University. It has unlimited storage and will be the vehicle for the latest information on University and UP alumni events and opportunities for donation or volunteerism straight to the inbox. The UP alumni email also guarantees that its account-holders receive the monthly Alumni eNewsletter. It will be the keystone in updating the alumni’s personal information in the UP Alumni Database.

The UP OAR clarifies that the email account may not be issued to anyone other than the UP alumnus/alumna requesting the service. Only one email account per alumnus/alumna is allowed. The OAR will request periodic status updates from UP alumni to confirm their continued relationship with the University.

Be part of the launch of this email service for UP alumni on November 12!
