AMRITA ALUMNI ASSOCIATION

Amrita Alumni Association is a network of alumni, students and members of the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. The association is an umbrella organization for alumni across all campuses. Our mission is to facilitate the interaction between the alumni and their almamater, thus providing an opportunity for mutual growth while maintaining strong ties to the University. While the students at Amrita are gaining the best of the learning experiences, progressively year after year, the alumni team too is strongly positioned to fully harness the power of unity. As a conglomeration of alumni teams across Amritapuri, Bangalore, Coimbatore, Cochin and Mysore, the Amrita Alumni association encompasses all campuses under the Amrita banyan to enable cross-campus networking across the world. Inspired by Amma’s teachings and with Her blessings, the alumni representatives from all campuses are working on the association initiative, guided by the ardent support of our respected faculty and management. This group intends to further strengthen the activities of the individual teams from a global network of Amrita Alumni fraternity.

AMRITA ALUMNI ASSOCIATION – BENGALURU CHAPTER

While the University Level Alumni Chapter is already in existence and is also active, it is always better to have a local chapter, which can coordinate with the University Level Alumni Chapter.
