Alumni Volunteers Make a Difference

Volunteers make a huge impact on our UB community.  No matter where you live, or how much time you have, you can make a difference!

UB alumni continue to lead the charge as trailblazers in their fields and responsible citizens in their communities. Together, we help current students with their careers, recruit the best and brightest to attend UB, make an impact on campus and in our alumni regional network and more.

What do volunteers do?

Whether you are looking to engage fellow alumni, connect with students, or volunteer with alumni in your community, we have an opportunity for you. Learn about the variety of ways that you can get involved and find rewarding activities that meet your interests, experience, and schedule.

  • Become a Regional Leader

    Work on a committee of like-minded alumni to plan and promote events in your regional alumni network.  

  • UB Admissions Alumni and Parent Recruitment Team

    Help recruit the next generation of UB students as an admissions alumni volunteer.  From college fairs, alumni interviews and Open House to accepted student receptions and congratulatory phone calls, there’s ways you can make an impact no matter where you live!

  • Be a mentor

    The Career Connector Network lets you easily connect and become a career mentor with UB students and alumni. Create your profile, choose the areas you’d like to mentor in, set your availability and engage as a Career Connector in minutes.

  • Welcome New UB Students

    UB alumni team up on New Student Move In Day and have the unique role of greeting incoming students and their families and providing much-needed directional assistance on the north and south campuses.

  • Be a panelist or guest speaker

    Whether in person or virtually, share your knowledge about your career, life experiences or a special topic of interest with fellow students and/or alumni.

Herd from volunteers

After all the memories and life lessons I gained from my four years at UB, I felt it was only right to give back and make sure that my fellow alumni back home in NYC felt as connected to the University as we all did during our time in Buffalo.
