Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways to get involved with your alma mater.

Alumni Admissions Volunteers

As a former student of Illinois Tech, you have a distinct connection to the university through your own experiences. Sharing your IIT knowledge during the college selection process is helpful for prospective students and parents. And referring a student to the Office of Admissions gives IIT a chance to discover bright new minds. The Alumni Ambassadors Program (AAP) offers several volunteer opportunities for alumni who want to help with admissions.

Career Assistance

Help put a student to work by referring jobs, participating in career fairs, and more. Contact the Career Management Center (CMC) today.


If you are interested in organizing a reunion with your former IIT classmates, please contact Marian Quirk at quirk@iit.edu.


Get connected and involved with your regional chapter or international group. Contact Marian Quirk at quirk@iit.edu with ideas, questions, and offers to help in your city.

The Big Event

IIT's biggest service event of the year takes place in April. Find out how you can volunteer around IIT's campus, in Chicago communities, or in your city.

IPRO Judging

Every fall and spring, alumni are needed to assist the staff of the Interprofessional project (IPRO) program in evaluating IIT's multidisciplinary teams representing students from engineering, science, humanities, business, architecture, psychology, law, and design make terrific advances each semester with a particular project. IPRO project courses offer a team-based learning environment in which students from various concentrations and disciplines work together to solve a real-world problem. Through the experience of working on this problem, students have the opportunity to apply and develop their teamwork, project management, communication, and ethical behavior skills.

For additional information about the IPRO program at IIT or serving as an IPRO judge, contact the IPRO office at 312.567.3986 or jacobius@iit.edu.

  • Host a gathering for students traveling to your region.
