Get Involved

Put Your Bear Network to Work

When you graduate from the University of Northern Colorado, the community you knew as a student is the network you connect to as a professional. A network where every relationship creates an opportunity for you and UNC, no matter the direction your education and career take you next.

Isn't it about time that we put this network to work? We think so, that's why we're asking alumni from across the network to get involved in supporting student success.

Specific opportunities are listed below, or you can share a general interest and we'll get you connected into an opportunity.

Sign up to get involved today!
