​Volunteer

We welcome alumni who are interested in donating their time and expertise to the College of Dental Medicine. There are many ways to volunteer:

Become a Student Mentor

Invite students to shadow in your office or volunteer to be matched with a student.

Be a Reunion Representative for Your Class

Reunion Reps serve as liaisons for their class during the reunion panning process, to connect with and encourage classmates to attend Reunion.

Participate in Continuing Education

The Office of Continuing Education offers an array of courses for dental professionals. Taught by our faculty, alumni, and visiting scholars, the courses range from evidence-based didactic sessions to hands-on model-based learning. If you are an experienced speaker or academician with knowledge to share on new research, techniques, or technologies, contact the CE office about teaching a course.

Speak at Alumni/Student Events

There are many opportunities for alumni to speak to current students about their career path and professional expertise.

Host a Regional Event or Study Club

You can host a brunch at a local restaurant, invite alumni to your home, plan an outing, or start a study club in your area. The Alumni Office will be happy to help coordinate.

Join the Alumni Association Executive Committee

This New York City-based group plans events for alumni, students, and faculty, creates engagement opportunities with students, and assists with fundraising.
