Admissions Volunteer Coordinators

Overview

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions relies on a strong volunteer network of alumni and parents to assist with recruitment efforts throughout the world. Through our Notre Dame clubs, alumni and parent volunteers share their enthusiasm and knowledge of Notre Dame to help personalize the admission process for prospective and admitted students.

Responsibilities

Admissions Volunteer Coordinators (AVC) are nominated from Notre Dame club leadership and approved by the Office of Admissions. We prefer that the nominee be an active member of a Notre Dame club. Volunteers manage the club's efforts in attending college fairs, contacting admitted students, and helping to identify prospective students. Please review the responsibilities page for more information. On an annual basis, the Admission Volunteer will be asked to renew their commitment to the position. Additionally, the Admissions Counselor for that area and the Associate Director, Alumni and Parent Relations will review the activities of the volunteers each year.

Training

We want to make sure our volunteers are fully equipped with the knowledge and resources needed to be successful in their roles. To facilitate this, we have developed a comprehensive training and resource program. The program features training briefs, videos, and live broadcasts on a variety of topics to prepare you for interacting with prospective students and parents.

How to Volunteer

New Admissions Volunteer Coordinators are nominated by their club and should contact Karen Putt to schedule a time to review the responsibilities of the position. Once the new volunteer agrees to fulfill the responsibilities of the position, they will review the training materials, submit the training completion form, and submit the admitted student data confidentiality agreement.
