2,900+ alumni have given their time to UCD, volunteering to support students, fellow alumni, and the wider UCD community. Marking its fifth year, the UCD Career Mentoring Programme matched over 185 students from Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Law and Science with alumni mentors. Working in partnership with UCD Global for the second year in a row, the Alumni Buddy Programme matched 40 incoming international students with local alumni helping them to settle in to life in Ireland.
Alumni have also contributed as speakers at events throughout the year, on campus and around the world, including on Alumni Career Panels, at the Graduate Studies Fair, Women in Leadership, UCD Festival, Overseas Chapter events and many, many more.
We are delighted to announce that UCD Alumni Volunteer, Eimear O’Flynn has won the CASE Europe Volunteer of the Year Award for her work on the Women in Leadership conference.
We are very grateful to our alumni mentors, buddies, speakers and panellists who have volunteered their time and hope to encourage more alumni to become involved in the future.
