Volunteering and mentoring

Be a part of Macquarie University’s alumni volunteer community today!

Macquarie University is proud of its alumni volunteers who give back to their alma mater with their time and talents. From hosting or speaking at events, mentoring students, and organising reunions, to becoming a point of contact as part of our overseas alumni networks, there are many ways for you to give back and impact your University.

As a mentor, you can make a positive difference in the lives of students by being a supportive guide and sharing your knowledge and experiences with them. Professional development and career advice is an invaluable tool in today's hyper competitive world and our students want your advice.

Alumni and our industry partners have key knowledge, skills, experiences and networks to guide our students in transitioning to professionals.
