What is the Alumni Admissions Volunteers Program?

Coordinated through the Office of Alumni Relations since 2010, the Alumni Admissions Volunteers (AAV)program supports the efforts of both undergraduate and graduate admissions. The program works with admissions representatives to actively engage perspective students during the recruitment process. The program also works with the admissions representatives to help welcome admitted and incoming students each year. The Alumni Admissions Volunteers program invites dedicated AU alumni and parents to assist with the recruitment of prospective AU students. The program and its volunteers are dedicated to recruiting a diverse and exceptional incoming class each year. 

AAV's can volunteer in multiple ways during the admissions process. Opportunities for engagement include, but are not limited to; hosting admissions events in your local area, calling perspective students on the phone to speak about your time at AU, emailing perspective students to answer questions, sitting on alumni and parent panels, attending New Eagle Welcomes in cities across the U.S. or New Eagle Day on campus, and participating in affinity group and regional welcomes each summer. 

The AAV program is a wonderful way to practice lifelong engagement with the university, and to connect with future generations of AU Eagles. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
