RUB ALUMNI-NETWORK » Conditions of use


The RUB Alumni Network serves to maintain contact between former members of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and with the RUB itself. Alumni decide by themselves if they register in RUB’s Alumni Directory. The Alumni Directory is for the Alumni managers (Administrative Department Student Service and International Office of the RUB, Alumni Services) to administer the Alumni data and document contacts. Only the Alumni managers of the RUB can access and view the Alumni Directory.
