Volunteer Opportunities

Help Build Stronger Communities

While studying at DU, students learn the value of working toward the public good and channeling passion into action. After graduation, life takes our alumni to every corner of the globe, but there are always chances to get involved and give back to the University, your fellow Pioneers and your community. Your action inspires future generations of DU students, setting the standard for service and strengthening our commitment to the global public good.

Share Your Network

As a grassroots networking platform built in 2015 to help DU students make professional connections after graduation, PioneerConnect is a critical resource for new alumni taking the first steps into a crowded, sometimes intimidating postgraduate world. Sharing your expertise and contacts is an easy way to give back to the DU student community and help launch the next generation of young professionals into promising careers.

Pioneer Alumni Legends

The PALs are a group of alumni who graduated 50+ years ago and participate in ongoing campus events and activities to engage with each other, university faculty, staff and leadership and show their ongoing Pioneer pride. The PALs celebrate with two signature events per year including the Emeritus Tea in June and the Summer Soiree in August.

During Spring commencement, we celebrate the 50th reunion and welcome the class to return to campus and reconnect with classmates and friends. A new class of PALs are inducted into the Pioneer alumni Legends at the Emeritus Tea annually.
