The heart of the UNB spirit

Engaged alumni are the heart of the Alumni Association. Our volunteer opportunities bring graduates together for the common purpose of encouraging increased participation and strengthening connections with each other, with their association and with the university.

Through our volunteer opportunities, you can contribute your time, treasure and talent to the mission of the Associated Alumni and UNB.

Volunteer opportunities

We offer a number of areas for alumni to get involved and lend their talents.

Regional Alumni Chapters connect alumni, friends and fans in shared geographic regions. These chapters include alumni volunteers who are the catalysts for bringing the UNB spirit to others, and for involving fellow alumni in their gatherings and activities.

By volunteering with a regional chapter, alumni have the opportunity to meet fellow graduates living in their area, create professional and personal UNB networks and stay connected to the university, while bonding over their shared interests. Regional chapter volunteers may assist with planning events in their region, helping to promote these activities to their fellow alumni and/or volunteering on site during such gatherings.

For more information on volunteering with regional chapters, contact Diane McAdam, Alumni Advancement Coordinator.


Graduates aged 35 or under are automatically members of our U35 Young Alumni Network. This program is designed to connect young alumni with fellow UNB grads, and provide opportunities to socialize, network and build professional relationships through both online connections and in-person events in your geographic region.

Are you interested in getting fellow young alumni together or joining a U35 chapter committee in your area? By volunteering, young alumni have the opportunity to meet fellow graduates living in their area, create professional and personal UNB networks and stay connected to the university. U35 Network volunteers may assist with planning events online or in their region, helping to promote these activities to their fellow young alumni and/or volunteering on site during such gatherings.

For more information on volunteering with U35 young alumni networks contact Natasha Rego, Young Alumni Coordinator.


The Alumni Office often receives requests from alumni who have recently moved, or are visiting a new region, asking if there are fellow alumni contacts in the area. Community contacts are those friendly voices who have volunteered to assist their fellow UNB alumni with this transition.

As a community contact, you can expect to be asked some of the following questions:

  • Can you suggest some good areas to look for housing?
  • What is the climate like?
  • Can you suggest hotels/motels?
  • What sort of culture/recreational activities can I find in the area?
  • What are some of the special events in the area?
For more information on becoming a community contact, reach out to Diane McAdam, Alumni Advancement Coordinator.

The UNB Associated Alumni has a rich and proud tradition of keeping UNB alumni connected with each other and with the university through its reunion activities. Reacting to an ever-changing alumni constituency we have adopted changes to our reunion program that we hope will keep you, our alumni, connected to each other and to UNB.

Through our reunion program, alumni volunteers interested in hosting a class reunion may help to plan, coordinate and organize the reunion activities, connect with fellow classmates and assist with reunion events on site.

Organize a reunion.

In addition to milestone reunion years, our affinity and special interest groups are cause for a celebration at UNB. How much fun would it be to get together with roommates from residence and reminisce about your house socials, or to relive a championship game with your fellow teammates? What about getting together with your faculty society members, or spinning some beats with your CHSR buddies? The possibilities are endless.

Alumni not only form a bond with UNB, but they also build relationships with their classmates and with the groups, teams and societies they participated in while a student. In an effort to keep these bonds alive and strong, the Associated Alumni is interested in offering affinity and special interest group reunions. Alumni volunteers interested in hosting an affinity celebration may help to plan, coordinate and organize the activity, connect with fellow members of their group and assist with events on site.

Faculties at UNB are focusing on blending experiential learning with classroom learning, and part of that is accomplished by bringing alumni and students together. Volunteer opportunities within your faculty may include speaking to a class about your career or a skill you’ve honed in the workplace, judging student competitions or working with students on a project at your place of employment. Opportunities also include participating in Career Talks events and mock-interview workshops as alumni mentors.

Faculties also occasionally look for alumni advisors and focus group participants to gain feedback and stay relevant to industry. Volunteering with the faculty from which you graduated is a fantastic way to give back and keep in touch! 

For more information, reach out to Diane McAdam, Alumni Advancement Coordinator.


The Associated Alumni Council is the voice and governing body of our 93,000+ UNB alumni.

Alumni Council is made up of a group of engaged, #ProudlyUNB alumni ambassadors who volunteer to conduct the business of the Association on behalf of all members. Each spring the membership of the Associated Alumni elects a representative group of individuals to act as a council for the association. The council meets at least three times a year, and conducts the business of the Associated Alumni through various committees.

The UNB Alumni Office works with the council of the Associated Alumni to meet its objectives.

Learn more about Alumni Council and get involved.
