Alumni Network

In conjunction with the UMD Alumni Association, Merrill College has launched the Philip Merrill College of Journalism Alumni Network. As a volunteer-led effort, the network's mission is to facilitate a strong and ongoing relationship between Merrill students, faculty and alumni; provide a supportive environment that nurtures the professional and personal development of network members; and create a community beyond the University of Maryland campus for all alumni.

All Merrill College alumni who are members of the UMD Alumni Association are automatically part of the Merrill College Alumni Network and a portion of your dues directly support the network's activities. To join, please visit
