Alumni Peer Agents

As an Elon grad, your network is probably bigger than you realize, and you have more influence than you know! If you’re the captain of your Elon friend group, this is the low-key volunteer opportunity for you. Connect with your friends when it’s time to register for an Elon event, come back to campus for Homecoming, or make a gift and make sure they know. You know how important our Elon alumni network is and the difference alumni can make together. Let’s channel that and pay it forward for Elon students. Read more >>

Elon Day Volunteers

There are two ways to get involved with Elon Day, the University’s annual day of giving and Elon pride. Elon Day Champions connect with friends and encourage them to make a gift on Elon Day through their custom peer-to-peer fundraising page. Choose a campus cause most meaningful to you and watch the dollars grow!

Elon Day Amplifiers are digital buzz builders. They make their own gift of any size and spread Elon Day excitement online and in the communities they call home. This is the perfect opportunity for you if having a peer to peer fundraising page isn’t quite your thing— we still need your support!

Boards and Councils

Elon Alumni Board

Appointed by Elon University’s president, the Elon Alumni Board engages with the Office of Alumni Engagement and other senior administrators to represent the alumni body to the university on a range of important issues. The board is also organized into several committees that partner with staff to make recommendations concerning alumni programs, benefits and services. Members of the board exemplify what it means to be an Elon partner, advocate and investor.

Elon’s Young Alumni Council (YAC) seeks to strengthen connections between young alumni and the university. Established in 2007, the YAC works in conjunction with the Office of Alumni Engagement and university on programs and services for young alums and current students.

Affinity Networks

The networks major areas of focus include opportunities for networking, mentorship and financial support. Each network is supported by the Office of Alumni Engagement staff, but led by alumni.
