The Alumni Committee arranges special activities throughout the year and keeps in touch regularly.
The committee comprises former students and present staff and is served by an Alumni Officer.
There is an annual Bulletin and more frequent email bulletins, giving news of the college and of former students, offering reflections, seeking comments, and announcing coming events.
The Committee aims to give to former students continuing support, friendship, and a little continuing education; the college in turn benefits from their advice, publicity and occasional financial support for innovations.
New College Alumni Committee, a committee of the School of Divinity of the University of Edinburgh, is appointed and convened by the Head of School in consultation with former students of the School and of its predecessor, the Faculty of Divinity.
It consists of a number of present staff and a larger number of former students, and is responsible for developing mutually beneficial interaction and communication between the School and its former students.
