Volunteering to share your experience and expertise with students and fellow alumni is a great way to give something back to Loughborough.
From sharing success stories to hosting an event, alumni give back to the University in a range of different ways.
If you have any questions or ideas about getting involved with the University and giving back, please contact us.
Share your story
Success stories are a great way to show students and prospective students where their degree could lead them, and they help to keep members of the Alumni Association updated with stories of fellow graduates. We know that our alumni progress to amazing careers, working all over the world across all kinds of industries and professions.
We're interested in hearing about your achievements. From winning an award or releasing a book to high-level career appointments and competitions, we're keen to hear from you. We also share stories of entrepreneurial success, alumni working together, Loughborough family stories, and more!
If you have an interesting or unusual career journey or have a news story to share, get in touch.
Alumni support student development by sharing their expertise and experiences with students across a range of areas by becoming guest speakers, panellists, and mentors.
If you are interested in offering your expertise, check out the list of current opportunities below and let us know if you can help. If you would like to offer your expertise for a future activity, contact us and we’ll be in touch when suitable opportunities become available.
If you are interested in supporting future activities, or would like to share your story in an alumni profile, please get in touch.
