The Alumni Association Board is a group of alumni volunteers who collaborate with the Office of Alumni Relations to create opportunities to connect, engage, and support our UMass Dartmouth alumni community.

Board members work to develop programs and initiative that connect UMass Dartmouth alumni with each other, with students, and the wider UMass Dartmouth community.

If you'd like to volunteer with the Alumni Association, please fill out the form below and tell us what you're interested in. A member of our Alumni Relations team will reach out to you to discuss ways you can become an active UMassD alum.

I want to volunteer!
