Drew relies on the involvement of its alumni, parents and friends to support the development of campus, affinity and regional programs that enrich the Drew community. Beyond giving, Drewids demonstrate their commitment through volunteering. Learn here about some of the many ways to contribute to Drew’s mission and enhance the experience of Drew students as well as Drew alumni, parents and friends.

Support Drew Students Through the Center for Mentoring and Professional Networks

Volunteers for the Center for Mentoring and Professional Networks create important links between Drew’s alumni community and current students seeking career advice and opportunities.

As a volunteer, you can sponsor an extern or intern, offer information interviews to current students or fellow alumni, mentor students or alumni and participate in networking events.

Expand Drew’s Reach Though the Volunteer Admissions Network

Volunteer Admissions Network (VAN) volunteers raise the visibility of Drew and provide the important personal contact that prospective students and their parents hope to find throughout the University search process. The Office of Admissions is growing its cadre of ambassadors for Drew to foster the building of such relationships. VAN members help in the following ways:

  • Serving as interviewers—in person or via Skype—of prospective students
  • Attending admissions events in their regions (Drew on the Road)
  • Hosting yield or send-off events
  • Representing Drew at college fairs
  • Opening the door for Drew in their communities by sharing information with personal networks about Drew and its myriad educational and experiential opportunities
