Alumni are a crucial component in building the University’s “Legacy of Excellence.”  There are plenty of opportunities for alumni to play an instrumental role with their alma mater. Designed with you in mind, the new Alumni Volunteer program provides the opportunity to give back to your community and fellow Wolverines.

This new platform provides you access to a variety of volunteer opportunities hosted by University of Michigan academic and non-academic units, as well as alumni clubs, affiliate groups, and regional campuses. With new opportunities added regularly, you will find numerous ways to give back.

From serving as a virtual mentor to keeping students fed and healthy by stocking campus food pantries, you can find ways to safely volunteer—wherever you are, however you can.

The possibilities of engagement are endless.   Let us know how you would like to continue your University of Michigan–Dearborn legacy.   GO BLUE!
