Become an Alumni Ambassador

Are you an enthusiastic graduate of USNY, Regents, or Excelsior who is interested in helping to strengthen the College’s network of more than 165,000 alumni worldwide? Then we’re looking for you! 

Choose from several flexible volunteer experiences available to graduates who want to give back to the College that helped them achieve their degrees.

Sign up to have someone contact you with information about Excelsior’s Alumni Ambassadors!

Host an Alumni Event

Drop us a line at and we’ll facilitate a social networking get-together with an online registration form and a list of alumni in your area you can contact about registering for your local alumni event.

Help Us Celebrate Commencement Across the Country

You don’t have to be in Albany, NY to help celebrate our most recent graduates as they walk across the stage during the College’s annual Commencement ceremony in July. Host a Commencement party in your hometown and we’ll celebrate together! Two ideas: 

Viewing Party: Excelsior’s Commencement ceremony takes place at 3 pm ET and is broadcast live online. If there are alumni in your area who are available on the Friday afternoon of Commencement, all you need is a gathering place, a laptop or PC with Internet access, or a smart TV.

After-Party: Happy hour, anyone? Get together with alumni in your area for an after-work gathering and raise a toast to Excelsior’s newest graduates. We’ll provide a list of alumni in your area and ask you to reach out to your fellow graduates.

Social Media Ambassador

Are you social media savvy? This is a very flexible opportunity; Ambassadors can accept or pass on assignments as time allows. Volunteers participate in Excelsior’s social media campaigns by sharing and commenting on College posts to help promote and cultivate engagement and awareness of Excelsior’s alumni and student communities. They also help promote the College by liking, commenting on, and sharing Excelsior content on their own social sites.
