Volunteer

Villanova’s success is powered by you—our dedicated alumni, families and friends who commit their time, resources and talents in a variety of ways. We know that together, we can accomplish anything, including paving the way for the next generation of Villanovans.

Explore the many in-person and virtual volunteer opportunities to get involved in your region, industry, school or college. Whether you’re looking for a one-time commitment or a larger role, we will help you create a meaningful experience.

Alumni Association

Interested in one of the below volunteer roles? Please contact the Office of Alumni Relations for more information! 

Regional Clubs: The VUAA has nearly 50 Regional Clubs worldwide run by volunteers. Help create a strong and vibrant local Villanova community by planning and promoting events, welcoming new alumni to the area and encouraging Nova Nation pride. 

Affinity Networks: Affinity Networks bring together Villanovans with common industries, interests or experiences. Volunteers offer our staff valuable insight on the latest important issues and trends, help find or serve as guest speakers and create connections for continued personal and professional growth.  

Reunion Class Committees: Reunion is a long-standing tradition that invites alumni and their families to campus to rekindle old friendships, explore a transforming landscape and strengthen their bonds with the University. Reunion Class Committee volunteers encourage classmates to come back and give back as part of this special experience. 

Host an Event:  A crucial element of any event—large or small—is ensuring that we have the right environment in which to hold it. Please email us to discuss opportunities to host a Villanova event in your home, business or at a local venue.
