Volunteer to Share Your Story or Expertise in the Academic Clubs

UMUC's Academic Clubs, which are run through WebTycho, invite alumni to visit as guest speakers to run one-two week seminars. Students have shown an interest in learning what alumni have done after completing their degrees, and this would be a good opportunity for you to share your story. Seminars typically run asynchronously, at a timeframe agreed upon between the speaker and club facilitator.

Our current list of academic clubs include Accounting & Finance, Communication Studies, Computing, Criminal Justice, English, Emergency Management & Homeland Security, Environmental Management, History, Human Resource Management, Legal Studies, Social Sciences, Political Science & Psychology.

If you are interested in volunteering as a guest speakers, please e-mail alumnirelations@umuc.edu with your name, the club you are interested in, and a couple of sentences on what you would be interested in presenting.
