Get Involved

There are many ways for you to get involved and make a significant difference in the lives of fellow alumni and students alike. Whether you feel compelled to give several hours a month or a couple of days a year, we need and appreciate your help!

Volunteer with your regional alumni club

You can help plan regional events to connect fellow alumni with one another and the University. From sporting events and community service projects to cultural and family-oriented outings, see what your local club is planning and get involved!

Volunteer with the UD Alumni Association

The UD Alumni Association is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Volunteers are always needed to serve on the board, serve on committees as members-at-large, and participate in our programs and services.

Become a career advisor for current students or young alumni

A common request we hear from alumni is that they want to connect with our current students, and help them along their professional journey by offering to share their own expertise. The University of Delaware Career Advising Network (UD CAN) allows for these interactions to take place. Registering is easy, and the potential impact is enormous.

Be a VAST volunteer

Volunteer for Reunion Giving

As you approach your 50-, 25-, 20-, 15-, 10-, or 5-year reunion, consider joining a select group of your classmates who focus on reunion giving. As advocates for UD, volunteers open doors, ask for gifts and make their own leadership commitment in honor of their reunion year. If you would like to volunteer contact us at (302) 831-2104 or email

Join the Parents Fund

The Parents Fund provides Student Life with valuable resources to support the education mission of the University through innovative services and programs that promote student learning, encourage personal development and well-being, facilitate strong bonds among students, and enhance their identity with the University as a community. Get more information.

Be a Blue Hen Helper

Formerly called the Arrival Survival Team, Blue Hen Helpers greet incoming freshmen and assist them and their families with moving into the residence halls at the start of each Fall semester (usually the end of August). Alumni are encouraged to volunteer as Blue Hen Helpers by calling (302) 831-8423 or signing up online. Read more about becoming a Blue Hen Helper on UDaily.
