Alumni chapter volunteers are involved in planning and logistics for alumni events in their city. They assist the Chapter President in planning annual or smaller scale re-occurring events (i.e. happy hours, crawfish boils, Christmas events, Mardi Gras events, etc.) on behalf of the Alumni Chapter. Chapter volunteers will work closely with fellow chapter volunteer leaders and the Office of Alumni Engagement staff to coordinate publicity and logistics for events.

Loyola Loyal volunteers assist in our fundraising efforts throughout the year.  Loyola Loyal volunteers connect with fellow Loyola alumni through hosting an annual event, making phone calls on behalf of the University, or send a simple message via email or social media. Loyola Loyal volunteers help to strengthen alumni connections to the university through their outreach. Loyola Loyal volunteers are well connected, enthusiastic, and great advocates for the university. There are many ways you can be Loyola Loyal. For more information, click here.

Parents and Alumni Creating Connections (PAAC)
Through participation in the PACC (Parents and Alumni Creating Connections Committee) you can be an integral part of the continued growth of Loyola University New Orleans. You can provide a positive influence in the recruitment of new students and their families to Loyola. PAAC volunteers share their Loyola experience with prospective students through college fairs, telephoning prospective students, and writing personal letters.

Parents' Leadership Council
The Loyola University Parents’ Leadership Council is a dedicated and passionate group of parents whose mission is to: Be an active representation of parent support for the mission and goals of Loyola University, enrich our students’ college experience, support the recruiting efforts of Loyola University by learning about Loyola’s academic strengths, accomplishments, and acting as an ambassador for the University, support the philanthropic goals of the university by making an annual parent leadership gift and fostering relationships that result in increased support and strong connections with new resources.

Reunion/Affinity
Whether celebrating a milestone class reunion or gather by a special-interest, affinity, or constituent society, we encourage graduates to form a committee with the assistance of the Office of Alumni Engagement. Alumni celebrating a milestone year are in their 10th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th, or 60th year as a Loyola graduate.  If you graduated in one of these years, please sign up to serve on the committee.  The success of the reunions is a direct result of the strength of the planning committees.  

Community Service
As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Loyola promotes educating and graduating “men and women for others.”  Alumni are invited to get involved with service opportunities in their communities. A great resource to search for upcoming service events is the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU). Many Jesuit schools open up service opportunities going on around the country to all Jesuit educated alumni. We also encourage you to serve during Loyola National Day of Service, Wolves on the Prowl, held in November.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the Office of Alumni Engagement through our volunteer interest form, call 504/861-5454 or 800/798-ALUM; or email alumni@loyno.edu.
