Volunteer Opportunities

From our campus to our communities, U of A alumni are doing great things through volunteerism. Make your time count.

Become a volunteer

The moment you chose the U of A, you became a member of our alumni community—250,000 vital and passionate people who share their talents across Canada and around the world.

This is the place for you to take advantage of alumni benefits, attend events and network with other alumni, share memories and keep in touch with the university. Look around. There’s no shortage of ways to stay connected.

The role of the Alumni Association is defined by the Alumni Charter, an agreement between the association and the University of Alberta that outlines the important role that alumni and the Alumni Association play in contributing to the success of the university.

100 Years

The Alumni Association turns 100 in 2015

In 1915, our first alumni came together with the belief that they could do more together than separately.

100 years later, that belief and spirit remain. “Do Great Things” is the promise and the challenge of our Alumni Association.
