Alumni volunteers make a unique contribution to UBC, to students, to the alumni community, and to the reputation of the University and help UBC achieve its mission – to advance knowledge and create positive change in the world.
There is a myriad of opportunities to get involved, including mentorship and helping to organize reunions.
