Contact with former students and teaching staff is a key issue at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, as are links to the city and region. These links are supported by numerous alumni and friends associations which uphold good university traditions in networking between friends and former students of a faculty or institute.

The cross-faculty "Friends of Mainz University Society" is open to anyone who supports research and teaching at JGU. If offers a lively network for all those with our university at heart.

As well as providing material support with a minimum of bureaucracy, the members of our alumni and friends associations reflect on the fortunes of our university and are on hand with their advice and experience, which are frequently a product of successful careers in a wide variety of responsible fields.

Our friends include current and former members of JGU as well as figures from public life, business, freelance professions, the services sector and politics.

We would be delighted if you would like to maintain your links with your/our university. We are sure that we can find the right alumni or friends association for you. Thank you for your interest.

You can find an overview of the friends and alumni associations at JGU on the support and donations page.
