Make a difference
Dedicated NC State alumni play a pivotal role in the Alumni Association’s success and help build relationships with fellow Wolfpackers in meaningful ways. We offer volunteers opportunities to stay involved with the university and fellow alumni.
The volunteer toolkit is for our alumni network leaders of the Alumni Association. We hope you find this toolkit useful as a reference for starting and maintaining an active alumni network.
What is an alumni network?
Alumni networks connect graduates and friends to NC State by engaging them through events that foster pride and create a lifelong connection to the university. The Alumni Association supports regional networks within the state, across the country and even internationally. Networks provide a community where relationships can grow into strong common bonds. Alumni networks are open to NC State alumni, parents, friends, fans and students.
The purpose of an alumni network is to:
- Promote NC State pride and traditions
- Support the mission of both NC State and its Alumni Association
- Organize events and programs to bring alumni together
- Increase membership in the Alumni Association
What Networks Offer
Networks connect alumni to one another based on geographic location. Many networks offer a wide range of programming that includes cultural, academic, athletic and recreational activities. The engagement team will work with each network to help get their
events set up, publicized and executed.
Why form a network?
Alumni networks exist to provide a tangible link to NC State and to
establish a mutually beneficial relationship between the university
and its alumni. The Alumni Association supports both geographical and constituency-based alumni groups.
