  • Alumni Stay Connected and Get Involved - Volunteer Opportunities

    Volunteers have a profound positive impact on Carlow University. Their work is essential to ensure a strong and healthy future of the institution. Whether it’s spending two or three minutes working online as a mentor by reviewing a senior's resume or working with Carlow’s Office of Alumni Relations with planning an event, our volunteers are unwavering in their continued dedication and support of our programs. Without their time, these events would not be successful. 

    We want to thank all of our volunteers for their generous commitment of time. Every minute you give adds to successful, sustainable, and enriching events and programs here at Carlow University.

    Current volunteer opportunities:

    Class representatives needed

    Do you like connecting with people? Why not connect with your classmates – reach out to them and encourage them to attend events and get involved. 

    Consider serving as a class representative. This is a vital volunteer position in the Alumni Association, bridging communication between your classmates and the Carlow community.

    As Class Representatives, you are asked to:

    Engage alumni to participate in the Association, advocate and promote Carlow University, maintain communication with classmates, collect updated contact information from alumni (especially e-mail addresses), attend and work on the reunion committee if it is your reunion year or the following year, attend Decade/Class Rep meetings, attend board  orientation, invited to attend quarterly board meeting, make an annual gift to the Carlow Fund to allow 100% Class Representative participation, attend one regional event per year and will support, whenever possible, all ongoing activities and events of the Alumni Association.

    As class representatives, you are welcome to attend all board meetings and expected to communicate with your Decade Representative throughout the year in addition to the expectations outlined above.  Class representatives are appointed positions and not elected by the Association. As such, class representatives do not have voting rights.

    Admissions Volunteers

    Alumni are needed to talk with prospective students, attend college fairs, refer a student (contact Admissions at admissions@carlow.edu), write testimonial letters, and participate in other admissions-related activities.
