Get connected with VUconnect, Vanderbilt’s new online community

Posted by on Thursday, August 6, 2009 in Articles, Fall 2009.

VUConnectAdVanderbilt has recently launched VUconnect, a new online community for alumni and students. Replacing Dore2Dore, VUconnect includes new and enhanced features. With VUconnect, you can share your latest news, find old friends and classmates, build networking relationships, share career advice and leads, locate a nearby alumni chapter, sign up for events—and connect with Vanderbilt, wherever you are.

Registering for VUconnect is easy. You’ll create your user ID and password using a 4-digit VUconnect code. If Vanderbilt has your e-mail address on file, you should have received this code in June via e-mail. Then go to to get started. (Your code will help you create a password; it is not your password.)

Registered Dore2Dore users will need to create a new user ID and password for VUconnect. The user name and password you had for Dore2Dore will not automatically register you for VUconnect, and Dore2Dore is no longer active. Biographical information from Dore2Dore has been automatically transferred to VUconnect with the exception of Career Advisor profiles, as VUconnect includes a new, improved system for this resource. Alumni with an e-mail address will continue to have e-mail forwarding service. Users of OwenConnect, the Owen Graduate School of Management’s online community, will need to also register for VUconnect to gain access to this comprehensive Vanderbilt online community.

Vanderbilt is committed to the privacy of its alumni, and registration for VUconnect is only open to Vanderbilt alumni and students.
