Volunteer and Get Involved – On Campus and Virtually
We need your help! At the heart of RIT's volunteer program is the spirit of giving – the "helper's high" when our alumni find a way to express their true altruistic nature. You can find your inspiration right here as you give your time and talent to your alma mater. On campus or close to home, we've got a great fit as you look for fulfilling volunteer opportunities. The commitment is small but the rewards are great. You can review the volunteer handbook and register here.
Campus events are an excellent way to reconnect by volunteering as you greet alumni, provide information to guests new to campus, hand out programs, assist in welcome center registrations and much more. These volunteer roles may seem simple, but are very necessary and greatly appreciated as an integral piece of our major campus events. We couldn't do it without you and we'd rather do it with you!
Participate proudly in Commencement and Convocation ceremonies; have a blast at Brick City Homecoming, RIT's fall tradition and Imagine: Innovation + Creativity Festival, RIT's signature campus event each spring. Also, you can be part of a team that is integral in reunion and affinity group programming.
We need strong and enthusiastic volunteers to provide their time and talent to help us create and organize class, athletic, Greek and other events for Brick City Homecoming in October and throughout the year.
This program provides alumni with the opportunity to connect with fellow RIT graduates in their area and reconnect with their alma mater. As a reunion/affinity volunteer, you will have the opportunity to share your unique skills and talents; get to know fellow classmates; gain leadership and event planning experience; work with a variety of people; provide educational, social and cultural opportunities for others; and most importantly, have fun.
Reunion/affinity time commitment is flexible and can fit any schedule. Planning for an reunion or affinity event requires a small amount of your time, and much of the coordination is done over the phone and via email. The Office of Alumni Relations supports you every step of the way. To learn more, please review the volunteer handbook You can review the volunteer handbook and register here.
