Class Liaisons

By volunteering as a Class Liaison, you will act as a helpful intermediary between the WUAA, the alumni office and your classmates. The WUAA and the office is constantly in contact with alumni, but nothing is more powerful than the personal touch a Class Liaison can provide.

The new Class Liaison Program is specifically designed to engage alumni through peer contact and encourage them to contribute in meaningful ways, including submitting Class Notes, joining philanthropic efforts and participating in events.

As a Class Liaison, your responsibilities would include:

  1. Acting as a communication bridge between the University and your classmates. You'll keep your classmates informed on current university issues and news, and relay their concerns and feedback to Willamette.
  2. Communicating with classmates. You will help the alumni community stay connected by disseminating WU-related information and by collecting news, such as Class Notes for publication in Willamette Magazine.
  3. Being a motivator. You will encourage your classmates to get involved in WUAA events and recruit committee members during reunion years. You'll also work with classmates to identify ways in which alumni can further support Willamette with their time, talent and treasure.

The Alumni Relations office will always be there to guide Class Liaisons and will assist them by providing email lists and inside information on happenings at Willamette. Since there is no limit to how many Ambassadors one class can have, volunteers can also find help from other classmates in representing their class. There is also no limit to the term of service, so Class Liaisons can feel free to stay on as volunteers for as long as they would like!
