Volunteer to Share Your Story or Expertise in the Academic Clubs
UMUC's Academic Clubs, which are run through WebTycho, invite alumni to visit as guest speakers to run one-two week seminars. Students have shown an interest in learning what alumni have done after completing their degrees, and this would be a good opportunity for you to share your story. Seminars typically run asynchronously, at a timeframe agreed upon between the speaker and club facilitator.
Our current list of academic clubs include Accounting & Finance, Communication Studies, Computing, Criminal Justice, English, Emergency Management & Homeland Security, Environmental Management, History, Human Resource Management, Legal Studies, Social Sciences, Political Science & Psychology.
If you are interested in volunteering as a guest speakers, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the club you are interested in, and a couple of sentences on what you would be interested in presenting.
Volunteers Needed for UMUC's Allies Mentoring Program
The Center for Student Success is looking for volunteers to be mentors in its Allies Mentoring Program.
The Allies Mentoring Program helps new undergraduate students transition to UMUC by matching them with experienced students and alumni. Mentors work with students weekly or bi-weekly throughout a semester, providing tips for academic success, sharing experiences, offering encouragement, and answering questions. Mentors can live anywhere since all contact with students is via e-mail, chat, or phone.
New mentors undergo a one-week online orientation, which is conducted via WebTycho. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a mentor or have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
