Chapters are the main point of contact for alumni activities in different regions and countries. A chapter will, at a minimum, adhere to a basic set of terms of reference and work towards agreed goals. However, each chapter will agree priorities and the activities important to them and their community. As a result some may wish to be more formal and to adopt a constitution.

Volunteer-led alumni chapters are entirely legally and financially independent from the University, but are officially recognised as alumni chapters by the University. They can also have their own group page within the online alumni social network, Leicester Connect.

Chapters are expected to fund and organise their own activities and events. However, there may be situations in which the University partners with a chapter on a particular activity for example; an alumni reception attended by the Vice-Chancellor, an academic workshop that features senior University academics, or a VIP fundraising dinner. In these cases, the University, in consultation with the chapter, will typically help the chapter organise, run, and pay for the activity.​

We ask that every chapter strive to maintain a consistent presence within their community by:Some chapters may have additional, more formal, programming that could include:
  • Hosting at least one event per year. This could be a networking event, careers talk or even a cocktail class!
  • Supporting alumni events in the local area where possible
  • Communicating effectively with fellow alumni and the Alumni Engagement team
  • Ensuring that the University receives details of upcoming events at least four weeks' in advance. This ensures activities can be shared with interested alumni
  • Assisting University of Leicester staff visiting the region and arranging events at which alumni can meet staff
  • Fundraising Events
  • Newsletter to members
  • Officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer, etc.)
  • A formal constitution
