Benefits & Services for alumni

FAQ

Why does the university offer alumni services & benefits?
The University of Saskatchewan’s affinity program was established to provide alumni with access to services they may need after graduation. We are able to negotiate preferred rates on services for our alumni (e.g. group insurance rates) and help our alumni benefit from special promotions (e.g.  Bonus AIRMILES and Student Price Card discounts on credit cards). We currently have agreements with selected external providers (affinity partners) to offer group travel, insurance, financial services, and access to retail and restaurant deals & discounts.

How are benefits and services selected?affinity seal
The University of Saskatchewan Alumni Office is approached by numerous vendors each year. A committee of members from Alumni Relations, Corporate Services, and Purchasing Services carefully screens each vendor and their program to ensure that the company is reputable and its services are of value to our alumni. If the proposal passes a value test (savings, security, or privileged access) it is given the U of S Official Alumni Partner Seal of Approval and a partnership agreement is signed.

Does the university benefit from these services?
In addition to providing discounts and group rates for alumni, affinity partners give a portion of their business back to the Alumni Office to help support and enhance events and programs for alumni and donors. Affinity partners also sponsor other university initiatives and have set up two scholarships for children of alumni.

How do I get information about alumni services & benefits?
From time to time we will send information regarding alumni benefits and services to our alumni. The Alumni Office oversees the distribution of these marketing materials through the services of a contracted mailing house; your personal information remains confidential and is never released to any of our affinity partners. Just like we protect the privacy of our alumni by never releasing contact information directly to our affinity partners, our affinity partners also protect their clients’ privacy. They will share aggregate data with us so we do know how many alumni take part in their programs/services. They do not share client information with us.

If you prefer not to receive information regarding alumni benefits and services, or alumni travel opportunities, please contact the Alumni Office at (306) 966-5186, toll-free at 1-800-699-1907 or alumni.office@usask.ca.
