Distance makes no difference. The Office of International Alumnae Relations and Development exists to help build and nurture relations with alums living outside of the United States. Smith is a global institution and no matter where you live, you can enjoy alum benefits and access to our powerful network, volunteer with the college, join (or start!) a club in your area, listen to (or give!) webinars and find out what your friends and classmates are up to—and so much more. Our international alums also share a common commitment to give to Smith in order to help the college flourish. We appreciate your support, and we’ve made the giving process seamless and easy, no matter where you live.
A Word from the Director
“What does it mean to be a ‘Smithie?’ It is not one thing, not easily summed up in a word or a phrase—but when you meet a Smithie, you have a sense of what ‘it’ is. Whether in Toronto, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, London, Mumbai, Dubai, Nairobi, Paris or any other place in the world, Smithies have a purposeful way of being that is immediately recognizable. With an expansive, interconnected global network like ours you will never be far from Smith. I invite you to get involved in the many opportunities that this diverse global network makes possible.”
—Jacqui DeFelice, Director of International Alumnae Relations and Development
