Get involved

Our alumni volunteers are a vital part of the Earlham community. Whatever your interests and strengths, there are numerous ways for you to get involved.

You can volunteer to:

  • Interact with campus/students. Return to campus or connect virtually for student-centric opportunities such as panels, guest lecturing, networking events and campus activities.
  • Support student career development. Participate in web-based conversations such as Skype panels, serve as city/regional contacts for interns or recent grads, lend professional expertise such as resume review, or represent your organization/institution at a career or grad school fair.
  • Organize an event. Host Earlhamite gatherings virtually or in your region.
  • Plan your class reunion. Work with peers and Earlham staff to plan a successful class reunion.
  • Recruit prospective students. Assist the Admission Office in securing the next generation of Earlhamites. You may also refer a student now.
  • Serve as your Class Chair. Be an ambassador to your class, and keep your peers engaged with the College.
