Alumni Volunteers

Alumni continue to make a difference at SMU long after they have left university.  You can be involved with SMU by contributing your talent and expertise. Be part of a growing group of dedicated volunteers who change the community landscape and ‘pay it forward’. These are some opportunities to stay in touch:

Upholding the SMU Spirit
Leadership, enterprise, initiative, adventure, and caring for the community – all these are qualities that embody the SMU Spirit. We encourage alumni to uphold the SMU Spirit and to continue to make a difference. Alumni are welcome to come back and share their expertise with students in projects that they have a passion for. 

Be An Alumni Mentor
As a mentor, you will gain a unique opportunity to develop valuable mentoring skills that will help you grow important leadership experience. By sharing your expertise, you not only help shape the future career of our SMU students, but also gain a mutually-beneficial experience.  

Lead a Group, Chapter or SMUAA
Contribute your time and passion to strengthening the alumni community and supporting the University in its endeavours.

Plan A Special Initiative
Special initiative volunteers contribute their time and energy generously to organise activities such as networking sessions or class reunions. Networking activities and reunions are a great time to meet fellow alumni and renew ties with former classmates. Be part of your class reunion planning committee and make it a truly special event.

Be a part of interview panels
Share your knowledge and wealth of experience as invited speakers or be part of scholarship interview panels and help identify deserving scholarship recipients.

Refer jobs or hire SMU alumni or students
Partner with us to provide career or internship opportunities for our SMU alumni and students respectively. Let's keep jobs and internships within our SMU family!

Be an SMU Host
Extend a warm welcome to international exchange students studying in SMU to enhance their SMU experience. These international students return home to become an advocate for SMU, spreading our name globally.
