U.S. Friends of Chalmers is an organization that aims at promoting and advancing education and research at Chalmers University of Technology through financial support and contact building in the United States. The organization was started in 2002 by Chalmers together with a group of Alumni. This is the first organization of its kind in the U.S. for a Swedish University proving how strongly many of our alumni and fans feel for their unique “Chalma Mater”. The first annual meeting was held in May 2002, electing the founding members Bo Hedfors, Erland Magnusson and Conny Kullman as officers of the corporation.
Principles of U.S. Friends of Chalmers are Chalmers University of Technology, Chalmers Student Union, Chalmers Alumni Association and Chalmers University of Technology Foundation.
