When Alumni and Friends Step Up, The U Shines Brighter

There is a vibrant spirit of volunteerism at the University of Miami—one that lights up every corner of our institution. Our 4,000-plus volunteers serve in a wide range of capacities, from lending their expertise to diverse boards and organizing national outreach initiatives to providing our students with mentoring and career guidance, plus much more. Through their generous commitments of time and talents, our volunteers exemplify what it means to serve others as they help empower the University community and inspire future generations of ’Canes.

To celebrate National Volunteer Week, below are examples of how our volunteers are making an impact. In spotlighting these few volunteers, we honor them all.

Getting involved is my small way of helping keep the people and places that make [the community] vital and vibrant.

No matter your age, location, skill set, or affiliation with the University of Miami, we welcome all volunteers and are grateful for your engagement with the ’Canes community.
