RYI Alumni

Welcome to Rangjung Yeshe Institute Alumni!
When you leave RYI, you are automatically enrolled as a member of RYI Alumni. RYI Alumni is your main point of contact with the Institute and former classmates, teachers and friends. Stay in touch with events at the Institute and network with friends and like-minded colleagues.
Our full alumni service will launch in the fall of 2013 and will potentially offer the following benefits:
  • Six-monthly RYI e-newsletter
  • Discounts on selected online courses
  • Regular news and event updates
  • Replacement degrees and transcripts (a fee will apply)
  • Academic references
  • Find a friend service
  • Stay in touch with home families service
  • Share your news with fellow alumni
  • Opportunities to support social work in Nepal through "Shenpen" (www.shenpennepal.org)
  • Opportunities to support the further development of RYI and its students.
Between April and July 2013 we are inviting all former students and faculty members to take our on-line survey to let us know the types of service they would like us to offer. The survey takes around 5 minutes to complete so please do get involved by visiting www.surveymonkey.com. Alternatively you are welcome to drop an email to greg.whiteside@ryi.org
