Regional Club & Event Volunteers

Cornellians live everywhere, and we like to get together.  Club leaders coordinate social, educational or service events for alumni, parents and friends of Cornell in a geographic region.  Local volunteers work in conjunction with the Alumni Engagement & Annual Giving team to generate ideas, plan and manage events, and recruit additional volunteers.

Class Agents & Reunion Volunteers

Staying connected with classmates is a hallmark of the Cornell alumni experience.  Class Agents serve to strengthen ties back to Cornell and among classmates. In preparation for reunions, Reunion Committee members partner with Class Agents to help build attendance at reunion events and encourage their classmates to give in recognition of milestone reunions.

Young Alumni Advisory Committee

Members of the Young Alumni Advisory Committee (YAAC) work with the Alumni Engagement & Annual Giving team to sustain excellence of the Cornell experience by increasing engagement and philanthropy among Cornellians who graduated within the past 10 years.

Cornell Admission Recruiting Experience (CARE)

CARE is a collaborative effort by the Admission Office, regional volunteers and the Alumni Association Board of Directors to provide opportunities for volunteer alumni to reach out to prospective students through person-to-person interaction.

Career Development & Mentoring

Cornell students and alumni alike benefit from a well-connected network of alumni and parents. Whether its through an introduction, an internship host or job offer, or by offering advice or training, Berry Career Institute volunteers help strengthen that network.
