Alumni Relations Office at Jimma University (JU) aims at establishing robust link between JU and its former Graduates. It commits itself to form an interwoven network of interaction between the University and its former graduates and among the Graduates themselves. The University has a strong belief that its graduates are potential assets and can have enormous contributions to its success if they are mobilized and kept connected. Registration of alumni has already started in 2010 but recently the office is moving to revitalize the association by establishing Chapters associations in different parts of Ethiopia.
