Our mission

AFAM’s mission is to grow the brand image of Arts et Métiers ParisTech in the United States and to strengthen the community of its students and alumni residing in the US. To that end, AFAM establishes strategic partnerships with universities, businesses, and nonprofit organizations, working closely with the school, its alumni association (la SOCE), and its foundation (Fondation Arts et Métiers). AFAM also provides a common platform to drive socio-professional activities that strengthen the community of its members.

Arts et Métiers AmphitheaterOur school needs to compete internationally against many larger, and often better funded, technology institutes and universities in the United States, Asia, and elsewhere in Europe. As such, we must expand our reach globally to become an attractive destination for the brightest international students, and a valued education and research collaboration partner for peer institutions. AFAM plays an indispensable role in this outreach endeavor.  

AFAM is a volunteer organization driven by motivated Arts et Métiers alumni in the United States seeking to give back to their school. Our efforts and your involvement give Arts et Métiers ParisTech, its students, and its researchers access to more opportunities. Together, we help grow a vibrant and engaged community of alumni, and strengthen the brand image of Arts et Métiers ParisTech in the US.
