Alumni Volunteering at Cardiff University

15 July 2014
20117Volunteers are an important part of life at Cardiff University.
Whether through mentoring, delivering talks to students, offering work placements or promoting the University on a national and international platform, alumni volunteers continue to be a vital element of University life, providing their time and expertise to support the employability of thousands of students and helping the University maintain its global reputation.Why volunteer?Alumni volunteering is a simple and effective way to give back to your University by supporting the careers of thousands of students and providing invaluable guidance that directly impacts their employability.

Alumni choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s a way of giving back to the University that helped shape their career, for others it’s a way of championing their subject and the University as a whole. Mostly, our alumni volunteer in order to continue their lifelong relationship with Cardiff University, improving the experience of students at Cardiff, and promoting the work carried out at the University.
