Your experience at Franklin doesn’t have to stop when you leave! There are a number of ways that you can get involved through a range of volunteer opportunities. These opportunities not only allow volunteers to make friends, support the University's mission and spread Franklin pride, but are also a fun way to give back to Franklin. Give your time today!
All members of the alumni community are included in Franklin’s Alumni Association. The Franklin University Switzerland Alumni Association is governed by the Alumni Council, an advisory group that is made up of alumni volunteers. The Alumni Council works closely with the Office of Advancement to foster lifelong relationships between Franklin University Switzerland and its students and alumni.
Class Leaders and class committees are an integral part of keeping alumni connected to Franklin University Switzerland. The primary role of a Class Leader is to strengthen and encourage bonds between your classmates.
Interested in connecting with other members of the Franklin Community in your area? Franklin Clubs are volunteer-run Franklin regional organizations for members of the Franklin to meet, connect in Franklin pride and have fun.
Every year Franklin organizes events around the world. We count on volunteers who are interested in collaborating with us to organize, present or host the next Franklin event, or to help us organize Franklin’s next Global Alumni Reunion scheduled for 2025.
