Red Deer Polytechnic Alumni Association

View of two pairs of feet standing on a cement block that reads "Passion led us here"In 1988, a group of graduates created the Red Deer College Alumni Association. Our goal?  To assist students and to help them stay connected with the institution. Now, we are a key part of the alumni journey, and we have an important role to play in envisioning the future of the alumni relationship as we become Red Deer Polytechnic.

You are automatically a member of the Red Deer Polytechnic Alumni Association (RDPAA) if you have completed 30 credits at Red Deer Polytechnic even while we were Red Deer College, or if you finished a trades program or completed a portion of it here, or if started your degree here - even if you finished it by transferring! If you don't fit this criteria, consider applying for an Associate Membership. 

The Alumni Association is governed by a volunteer executive and is dedicated to:

  • Promoting academic excellence
  • Maintaining an informed, interested and committed alumni
  • Furthering the friendship and associations made while attending Red Deer Polytechnic
  • Ensuring that Red Deer Polytechnic continues to play an integral role in central Alberta

If you're interested in serving on this volunteer board, join us at the Annual General Meeting, check out our bylaws or apply online today!
