Join Our Alumni Ambassador Program

No one knows the benefits of earning a University of Maine degree better than our graduates. The UMaine Alumni Ambassador program provides an exciting and engaging opportunity for passionate alumni who are proud to forever be a part of Black Bear Nation to continue Defining Tomorrow by offering time to recruit the next generation of students to UMaine. It is no secret that UMaine Black Bears are proud of their Alma Mater, its traditions, and also the way in which UMaine stays on the cutting edge of research, and economic development, fostering learner success and always looking for ways to advance our inclusive excellence.

Are you interested in engaging with learners in your area to share your passion for UMaine and the world-class limitless learning opportunities it has to offer? If so- you may be a perfect fit to partner with the office of Enrollment Management to aid in the recruitment of new students. There are various ways alumni ambassadors can help promote UMaine including but not limited to:

  • College Fairs– tabling at a location amongst many other colleges sharing with students that come to your table information about UMaine.
  • Hosting Events In Your Area– helping to partner with Enrollment Management to host engagement events, in person or virtually, with prospective or accepted students in your area.
  • Letter Outreach– sending personalized communication(s) to students and/or their families in your area.
  • Attending Enrollment Events As An Alumni Rep- attend accepted student events on or off campus, New Student Orientation, Open House events and more to provide support to welcome and engage with potential future students and their families.
  • Share Your Story– share what UMaine offered you and what you have benefited from in life as a result of attending UMaine. Written testimonials for our outreach communications, short videos for social media and other formats to share the success of our alumni.

If giving back to your alma mater through helping recruit the next generation of UMaine Black Bears sounds exciting to you please fill out the alumni interest form to share some key information and the type of specific events you are interested in participating in and the office of Enrollment Management will be in touch soon!
