Current Volunteer and Engagement Opportunities

Submit Messages of Encouragement with Current Students

Engineering alumni are invited to share messages of support with current students navigating the COVID-19 emergency. As students adjust to online instruction and cope with being separated from friends and classmates, the alumni perspective is as important as ever. Share kind words, guidance and advice with current students via video or text message.
