There are many valuable ways to give back to the AUP community. You can share your talents and time with AUP students and the global AUP community by participating in one of our programs listed below. To learn more about these opportunities, please contact

Be an alumni representative

Alumni, former students, parents and friends who love AUP and would like to help out with AUP’s engagement efforts in their own time are invited to join our roster of AUP’s alumni representatives. Some ways our alumni representatives can support AUP include:

  • Hosting or helping organize an AUP alumni get-together in your city, with support from AUP’s Office of Outreach and Advancement
  • Being a social media ambassador: posting, sharing and promoting AUP activities around the world
  • Helping us update out records so we can contact your alumni friends and classmates who we’re not in touch with
  • Reaching out to your classmates to share AUP news and events.

If you’d like to take part, let us know you’re available to help AUP’s engagement efforts by emailing

Become a career mentor

Every year, alumni mentors partner with current AUP students to help them develop the essential professional skills they will need after they graduate. You can find out more about the career mentoring program here.

Talk to students

We’re always thrilled when our alumni come back to campus and share their experience and expertise with students, whether by sitting on a panel to offer students feedback on their GPS Design Your Narrative speeches, or by guest-lecturing a course or module. There are many opportunities for short-term volunteer engagement with direct student contact and impact. If you are interested in this type of volunteer opportunity or if you would like more information, please email
