The Alumni Network of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf

The image of the "alma mater" (the kind and nurturing mother) has established itself as a fixed concept for "university". Students are metaphorically nourished with knowledge and education.

The term alumni (from the Latin alere, to nourish, to raise; alumni = the plural of alumnus; female form: alumna) describes the "offspring" of the respective alma mater. Alumni are thus on the one hand former students, but on the other hand also former university staff. Many other words are used to describe the former associates of a university, but we have agreed on alumnus and alumna, since this makes established members out of former associates of Heinrich Heine University.
