UPEI Alumni Handbook: Your path to Panther life!

The UPEI Alumni Association is composed of all alumni of Prince of Wales College, St. Dunstan’s University and the graduates of UPEI. The association was formed in 1972 by a group of UPEI grads who felt that having an association of alumni would foster the growth of the University and bring a sense of unity among former students. There are over 26,000 alumni and each year new graduates join this impressive network, strengthening our Panther Pride!

Our commitment to you is one of Continued Support!



UPEI Alumni are represented by the UPEI Alumni Association, which strives to:

  • Nurture and strengthen the bond between Alumni and UPEI
  • Provide opportunities for Alumni to build relationships with each other
  • Represent and advocate Alumni perspective at UPEI
  • Support UPEI students through financial, material, and human resources




Distance means so little when our Alumni mean so much!






We’re growing our network and strengthening our bond

We’re growing chapters around the world. Here are some major cities where volunteer alumni chapter leaders are planning special events to keep you connected!


Join an Alumni Chapter committee and stay connected to UPEI and your fellow Alumni, wherever life takes you.

If you would like to participate in chapter activities in any of the above areas, or you are interested in launching a chapter, get in touch! Just email alumni@upei.ca and we’ll help you!



Even through the years and vast distances, I still have a warm place in my heart for UPEI.
