Alumni & Parent Programs

Get Involved

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. Alumni volunteers are a vital part of the success of Lewis & Clark College, and there are many ways in which alumni can contribute their time. Please read below about the various ways to be involved. 


  • Pioneer Career Corps: help students launch their career through individual mentoring.

  • L&C Network Advisor: join L&C’s Linked In network and be a part of the Pio professional network.

  • Class Reunion Volunteer: help organize your reunion and get your classmates to come!
  • Alumni Weekend Volunteer: be a part of the crew that helps put on Alumni Weekend, whether it is a reunion year for your class or not!
  • Philanthropy Council: help the advancement office raise awareness about the importance of giving back and the culture of philanthropy at L&C.
  • Board of Alumni: volunteer board that oversees alumni planning and programming and guides the office of Alumni & Parent Programs.
  • Event Volunteer: help out at an event in your area, help us find venues, or make calls reminding alumni to come.
  • Community Friends Program: invite an international student to join your family for a couple of get-togethers and introduce them to the U.S. culture.
  • Nominate fellow alumni for Alumni Honors Awards. Each year the Board of Alumni honors alumni who have achieved distinction in their chosen field, have shown exceptional leadership qualities and/or have demonstrated outstanding volunteer service in their communities and the college. Learn more here.
  • Refer a Student: do you know a high school student who might be a good fit with L&C? Please let us know. The gift of a referred student is one of the nicest things alumni or Pio parents can do — for the college and for the student!
