The CPS Security Programs Alumni Network is intended to foster a spirit of community and bring together the diverse group of alumni and students.

The Alumni Network will allow alumni to connect, network, and continue to build meaningful relationships beyond the classroom. Current students, especially those approaching graduation, can utilize the Alumni Network as a resource to network and receive guidance from alumni. The Alumni Network exists to support and strengthen the ties between the alumni, the College of Professional Studies, and Northeastern University.
