Regional Network

No matter your connection to the University of Rochester, you are an important part of our Network! Regional networks are currently launching in several cities to bring the energy and excitement we feel here on campus across the country. Interested in getting involved? We are looking for volunteers to help us...

Organize Events

The University of Rochester offers a number of regional events and programs each year. But the fun doesn’t have to stop when our events end! Round out your region’s event calendar by organizing a social gathering. From happy hours to educational opportunities, and from cultural performances to athletic events, it’s easy and rewarding to bring together the Rochester community in your area. We even have a number of planning tools and resources to help support your events.     

Connect, Steward, and Spread the Word

Always buzzing about the University of Rochester? We need you! Spreading the word about area events, activities, and volunteer opportunities is critical to the success of our regional networks.

If you’re willing to make a few calls, send a few emails, or simply talk up all that’s going on, let us know. We may ask you to help us welcome new alumni to your area, promote a specific event, or say thank you to our newest donors.

Are you “social” savvy? Our Social Media Ambassadors post, like, snap, insta, and tweet all things Rochester to their legions of friends and followers. Check out social media central.

Interested in building connections around shared interest or experience within your local Rochester network? Help us build and grow our regional affinity groups. Contact us for more information.

Lead and Coordinate

Volunteer leaders within each Regional Network come together as the Network Leadership Cabinet, a group responsible to lead and coordinate University of Rochester activity. Network Leadership Cabinets are led by co-chairs and their diverse membership reflects the University’s constituency, volunteer opportunities, and regional geographies.

As the key ambassadors for the University of Rochester within their region, Cabinet members help ensure that Network members have a fulfilling experience with the University of Rochester on all points of engagement. Network Leadership Cabinet members and co-chairs are appointed and have a significant history of service to the University of Rochester.
