Alumni Connections

Founded in 1968 with only 40 students, the Dolibois European Center now welcomes 100-120 students per semester and has over 12,000 alumni. Our alumni have wonderful memories of their MUEC/MUDEC experience and many students declare that their time in Luxembourg profoundly enriched and transformed their lives. MUDEC embraces our alumni passion and continues to offer the same transformational experience for today's students. We hope that you will remain involved or re-connect with MUDEC.

MUDEC 55th Anniversary Celebration

October 10-12, 2023

Mark your calendars and plan to join us in Luxembourg to celebrate the 55th Anniversary of the Miami University John E. Dolibois European Center.

Plus an Oxford-based celebration during Alumni Weekend 2023!

More information and details for the event will be shared at a later date.

Student Send Offs

Each Fall, alumni host send-offs for the next group of students headed to Luxembourg. Send-offs are held in Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland and Chicago. It is a great way to welcome the new students to the MUDEC family and for our alums to connect with others in the area. If you are an alumni and interested in participating in future send offs, please contact our alumni department for information.

Alumni Advisory Board

Contact the Miami University Alumni Association if you are interested in participating in the MUDEC Alumni Advisory Board which meets regularly and is designed to give an alumni voice to current MUDEC issues.

Alumni Weekend

Annually on Alumni Weekend MUDEC hosts a reunion. Keep an eye on the schedule to find out when this year's will be.
