The Alumni Association

Alumni are ambassadors bridging the past and future of New England College. There are many ways to stay active and engaged in the life of your alma mater. Volunteer to speak to a class, assist with prospective student recruitment, plan your class reunion or other alumni event, or give a monetary gift to ensure the future of the College.

The Alumni Association of New England College consists of over 12,000 members and counting. This vibrant network includes alumni across the US and around the world. There is strength, experience, and a wide variety of talent in these numbers. The Alumni Association is led by the association president and four alumni volunteer committee chairs.  Your Alumni Association Leadership Team invite you to be engaged in the life of New England College through volunteerism with the Alumni Association Volunteer Network. Support from alumni will ensure that the College will remain strong well into the future.

The Alumni Association Volunteer Network

The Alumni Association  Volunteer Network and New England College offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities designed to respond to critical needs of the College.  Built on the foundation of alumni volunteer interest, the most critical areas of need for NEC, and representing the future success of New England College, the Alumni Association Volunteer Network will focus on the following four areas:

Event planning
Admission Support

Each of these focus areas will be led by alumni volunteers who provide experience, guidance, and relevance to his or her area.  Volunteers will work directly with the alumni relations office to ensure that all initiatives are mission focused.  We expect that these focus areas will offer a tangible opportunity for alumni to be involved.

The benefit to the volunteers include: 
Helping future generation of NEC students and future alumni
Meaningful activity for your life and for your resume
Connections that help you and your career
A sense of pride, giving back to a place that helped guide your own transformation
