Get Involved

If you would like to be a part of the exciting changes happening at the University, there are many opportunities to volunteer your time and talent. For example, you can help out with alumni events, provide expertise on an advisory board, or mentor a student.

Alumni Association Volunteering

Volunteering for the Alumni Association can be a great way to give back to UVU. We offer many different positions in which to volunteer and lend your expertise.

Positions:

Alumni Board Member

Attend and participate in both board and committee meetings—regular meetings, special meetings, and planning sessions—to monitor and guide the alumni association's strategic direction. Act as a link between the community and UVU not only representing the community to UVU but also representing UVU to the community and acting as an ambassador for UVU.

Committee Member

Serve on one of the following committees: Marketing, UVU Magazine, Events, Legislative Affairs, or Scholarship and Awards and offer experiential advice and guidance to the Alumni Association in those areas. Attend periodic meetings, (monthly to bi-yearly) offer input, and carry out assignments.

Chapter Leadership

Work with specific UVU schools and colleges to establish or maintain alumni chapters in their fields of study. Hold reunions or other activities, with the help of a chapter and the Alumni Association, to keep in touch with alumni and keep them involved with UVU.

Mentors

As a mentor, you would offer support, encouragement, and an 'industry perspective' to a student. No promise of employment is made or sought in a mentoring relationship. From the start, you and your student will discuss your mutual expectations and goals for the mentoring relationship.

Student Internships

Intern for a semester with the UVU Alumni Association through the UVU internship program. Areas of need: communications, photography, web design, hospitality, database management, and graphic design.

Alumni Ambassador

Create opportunities in your community for potential students to find out more about UVU. Offer your organizational skills and insights while acting as an ambassador for UVU for those considering studying here. There are several ways to help: visit local high schools, host open houses, represent UVU at college nights, or be a part of the parent program.
