The KU Alumni Association relies on the help of 500 volunteers to connect Jayhawks across Kansas and throughout the nation. Volunteers help the Association achieve its goal of strengthening KU, and we are indebted to these Jayhawks for their loyal service. There are lots of opportunities to get involved. Here are just a few of the many ways alumni volunteers support the efforts of the KU Alumni Association.
Each alumni chapter benefits from the leadership of alumni volunteers who lead chapter meetings, organize events and support Association programs. Officer positions may be available in your chapter, or you can help establish a club or chapter in your area if one does not currently exist. To volunteer, please contact Alumni Association staff: Danny Lewis directs national alumni groups, and Brad Eland leads Kansas programs. Betsy Winetroub directs the Greater Kansas City Area Chapter, and Lynn Loveland oversees the Wichita Chapter. More information is available in our Chapter Volunteer Manual (click to download).
You can help KU make its case to the Kansas Legislature by joining Jayhawks for Higher Education. JHE volunteers help advance KU’s legislative priorities each year. Contact Jennifer Jackson Sanner to participate in our vital legislative advocacy.
The Kansas Honors Program recognizes the top 10 percent of high school seniors throughout the state of Kansas each year. Alumni volunteers help coordinate 37 KHP events statewide. Michelle Miles directs this program, an Association tradition since 1971.
