Our alumni represent a powerful professional and personal network that is more than 44,000 strong!  Proud CU alumni stay connected, stay informed, and help create an even stronger Clarkson for future Golden Knights.

Your support is visible throughout every facet of campus and has helped our students, faculty, and staff excel.  The Clarkson experience would not be possible without it.  Golden Knights, thank you!  

Clarkson was founded by the generosity of Thomas S. Clarkson’s three sisters and niece in 1896.  Today, the University thrives because of the support of our donors.
