Frequently Asked Questions
Reconnect 2022 is scheduled to take place as planned May 5–8, 2022 in Chicago.
Following guidelines from the CDC, we are carefully monitoring Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the situation in locations where Chicago Booth has scheduled events and programs. The situation is fluid in many areas, and we will be in touch should any changes or cancellations become necessary. In addition, we will post updates to the Reconnect website homepage.
Reconnect weekend is a unique alumni occasion that combines great events in one special weekend: class reunions and Management Conference. The weekend is a great time to catch up with former classmates, listen to renowned faculty present their latest research, and take advantage of all that Chicago has to offer.
The class years celebrating a reunion in May 2022 are 1960–72, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, 2012, 2017, and 2021.
All Chicago Booth alumni and their guests are invited to attend Reconnect. Designated activities are for only for alumni celebrating their reunion, and select events are family-friendly as well.
We hope you can take full advantage of not only the activities Booth has planned but also some of the attractions Chicago has to offer. Please email the reunions team for a list of activities and attractions in the Chicago area and for additional transportation and logistical information.
Business attire is recommended for Management Conference and business attire or dressy casual for your class reception. For all other events, the dress is casual.
Any outright gift, multi-year pledge, or any matching funds received between July 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022 will count toward your reunion class gift. For multi-year pledges, donors, as well as their affiliated class, will be recognized for the entire commitment. If a gift has already been made this fiscal year, it will be counted in the reunion totals. For additional questions about giving, please email Celeste Goering.
Yes. The Annual Fund sustains Chicago Booth’s fundamental strengths—our world-class faculty, top-performing students, and global reputation for creating knowledge with enduring value and educating future leaders. Alumni who give to the Annual Fund each year are considered Chicago Booth’s “living endowment.” Each year, more than 8,000 alumni make gifts that the dean uses to fund student scholarships, hire the best faculty, and provide seed funding for initiatives that will transform business. A gift to the Annual Fund is important for three reasons:
- It helps make Chicago Booth a top business school;
- It provides the dean the ability to make immediate impact;
- It renews the connection alumni have to the school as part of a special community of supporters.
