Curtis Connect FAQ

What is Curtis Connect?

  • Curtis Connect (alumni.curtis.edu) is a digital networking community for alumni of the Curtis Institute of Music. Whether it's reconnecting with old friends (or making new ones), sharing news or upcoming opportunities, or applying for jobs posted by alumni, you'll find it on Curtis Connect.

How do I get started?

  • Activate your profile by clicking the link. We suggest syncing your LinkedIn profile, as it's the quickest and easiest way to confirm and add to your profile.
  • Follow the instructions to add all of the relevant information to your profile.
  • Post a message to say hello and introduce yourself in a regional or instrument-focus group, post about an upcoming gig or concert, browse to find people you know, and invite other alumni to join through social media.

Do I need to re-set my privacy or communications preferences with Curtis?

  • No. Curtis’s alumni and parent engagement office has pre-loaded your current privacy settings in the community. If you have requested no e-mail or mail, asked to not be listed publicly in the directory, or any other previous request, that has been marked in the settings on your account. You can change those settings and notifications at any time.

Is this just another social media channel?

  • No. Curtis Connect does not replace our social media channels. We still want to interact with you on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn. Curtis Connect is a space for Curtis alumni, faculty, staff, and students to interact, collaborate, and inspire each other through our shared community of experience. Find out below about all the things you can do on it.
