Submit a Volunteer Opportunity

Volunteer opportunities provide alumni with meaningful and rewarding ways to give back to Kent State University while connecting with students and fellow Flashes. Alumni are seeking engagement with Kent State in a multitude of ways, such as guest speaking roles, committee member positions, event support, portfolio and resume review, recruitment, job shadowing, informational and mock interviews, networking and more. 

All opportunities must be registered two months prior to the RSVP deadline for volunteers.
