The Alumni Relations Unit of the College was established by the College Management on June 5, 2018. Over the years, it has been observed that the role of Alumni in all tertiary institutions cannot be underestimated. This underscores the need to federate all class sets of Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo in order to actively engage all ex-graduates of the College to participate meaningfully in the development of the College based on the fact that the Alumni Relations practice is a global trend in higher education.

The role of Alumni in attracting goodwill to their Institution via their Department, Institute, Faculty and School is endless and for the purpose of this presentation we will consider the few listed below:
The College held her first Alumni Induction Programme organised on 20 August, 2019 at the BOT Hall, School of Science. This event brought the gathering of over three thousand (3,000) students and one of our paramount Alumni class of 87 set in person of Mr. Bimbo Alagbe, Managing Director, Western Hotels delivered a talk on that day titled: “The Role of Teacher Education in Grooming Worthy Alumni”. He gave a thought provoking lecture and at the end of the event, the Provost of the College, Dr. R. A. Adefabi, presented certificates of induction to our final year students. Above all, all the Principal Officers of the College were in attendance. It was indeed a memorable day in the history of the College.
