Why Get Involved?
You can help shape the future of Lincoln University by getting involved with your Alumni Association. Join the hundreds of alumni already volunteering by leading your talents on a national or local committee, attending local chapter meetings and functions of the Alumni Association, or submitting an award nomination. Your involvement makes you a partner in creating a stronger learning environment for students, and increases the value of your own degree.
Ways to Get Involved
One of the basic reasons we exist is to educate men and women who will enter careers of all types. We need alumni in every city to keep us apprised of jobs and internships that may be available where they work and live. We need alumni to forward on a weekly basis any potential openings to our Office of Career Services so that we can ensure that our Students and Alumni are aware of potential leads. In instances where you have firsthand knowledge, we need you to assist the Career Services office in setting up interviews and in acquiring internships. If you can assist in this regard, please fill out the Career Liaison Form by clicking here.
Research has shown that students who are mentored tend to have greater retention rates. In this regard, we want to provide an alumni mentor for each of the freshmen enrolling at the University. Mentors do not have to be in the state of Pennsylvania to serve because most of the contact will be via email and cellular telephone. While all mentors have to complete a training course, which we offer here on the campus, it can also be completed online. Once you have been certified as a mentor, you will be paired with a student, preferably someone from your locale so that you can physically meet with them when they are at home on breaks. We do ask our mentors to come to the campus during Freshman Convocation if at all possible so that you can actually meet your mentee. Mentors are also asked to contact electronically or telephonically with mentees at least twice a month. If you are interested in serving as a mentor, please complete the Alumni Mentor Form by clicking here.
While we are a state-related institution and are seeking to recruit and enroll as many students as possible from the state of Pennsylvania, we need a diverse student body—comprised of those from all 50 states and U.S. territories as well as foreign countries. Alumni recruiters must complete a training course offered by the Office of Admissions who will supply you with all materials and information needed to recruit. The staff will also make the necessary arrangements with the schools in your locale for you to recruit there. If you are interested in assisting in this endeavor, please complete the Alumni Recruiter Form by clicking here.
The University will be publishing an alumni bulletin at least twice per year and the AALU will highlight Alumni throughout the year. We need alumni reporters in every locale to ensure that we stay abreast of where and what our alumni are doing. Oftentimes, alumni fail to toot their own horn and we are unaware of some of the great things they are doing which distinguishes not only themselves but the institution as well.
