About us

Xiamen University General Alumni Association was established in Changting on May 6th,1940. “The mission of the association is to integrate talents cultivated by Xiamen University and to reach out to elites other than alumni to do our best for the country and the society.” said Sabendong, the then president of Xiamen University. Upon establishment, the association soon inspired Xiamen University alumni at home and abroad to set up branches to exchange with and support the Alma Mater. Later in the early 1970s, it became an official organization authorized and enrolled by the Ministry of Civil Affairs. Supported by XMU party and government leaders as well as alumni at home and abroad, our alumni work has achieved remarkable results for three decades, with alumni branches flourishing all around the world. 

The duty of the general association covers the following three aspects: to carry forward fine tradition and studying climate of Xiamen University and to enhance cohesion among XMU alumni through extensive contact with them and diverse fellowship activities based on college and local branches of the association; to promote our alumni’s understanding of the Alma Mater by vigorously publicizing her latest development, thus promoting exchanges and cooperation in scientific research; to serve XMU alumni and encourage them to achieve more in their careers.
