Student Organization Presenter Volunteer
Throughout the year, student groups often approach the alumni office and the student involvement and employment office (SIEO) to find alumni volunteers to speak to their student organizations. Please answer the following questions and check the appropriate blanks to help us determine when to contact you to serve on a panel or as a speaker. In addition, if you have certain topics that you would like to speak about please list those as well. Please note that the alumni office cannot determine when a student group will request a speaker if your area of expertise. If there is a specific student organization that you would like to present to, the alumni or SIEO office may contact that group on your behalf to inquire about openings in their meeting schedule.
What the Alumni Office can do:
- Enter your information and interest into our list of alumni speaker volunteers.
- Recommend you to student groups as they are planning events and panels.
What YOU can do:
- Keep us current in terms of what topics you would be interested in speaking about.
