One great way to stay connected and involved with your alma mater is through volunteering your time. We depend on our alumni volunteers to be ambassadors of their Alumni Association and the University, and to help us connect with alumni in new and creative ways.


Alumnifire is a new online professional networking and mentoring tool for UNE alumni, students, and staff. As a member of this online community you can volunteer to support current students and fellow alumni through: 

  • Informational interviews
  • Introductions and networking
  • Resume reviews and feedback
  • Job shadowing
