Volunteers! Thank You For Your Time . . .

Join UNM alumni who give thousands of hours to serve our university students and community by volunteering.

There’s no cost, other than your time. The reward is that you help make our community stronger and you make your UNM degree more meaningful. Volunteer roles can vary from mentoring students to serving on a governing board to helping organize Alumni Association events and even serving hotdogs! There is something for every interest and Alumni volunteers get the satisfaction of giving back to the University while networking with fellow alumni. Volunteering, the gift of your time.

How Can I Get Involved?

Tell people in the community you are a UNM alum. Wherever you are active, let them know you are a UNM grad. Wear that UNM lapel pin, hang your diploma, or show your Lobo colors on those casual Fridays.

Be a part of our community!
