REUNION SUCCESS IS BASED ON THE DEDICATION AND ENTHUSIASM OF A REUNION COMMITTEE

All volunteers are encouraged to attend Reunion, support Regional Pre-Reunion events, connect with classmates, support your class gift to the Wharton Fund, and rally fellow classmates to do the same.

REUNION VOLUNTEER

The role of a Reunion Volunteer is to help create a deeper culture of engagement and philanthropy with your classmates and with Wharton. Upon graduation, Wharton became a part of your personal brand. Your work in this capacity strengthens that brand for generations to come. Our team is committed to making this an enjoyable and rewarding experience for our volunteers.

WHICH SUBCOMMITTEE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
OUTREACH, MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS, OR EVENT PLANNING

Most successful Reunions involve three subcommittees (Engagement, Fundraising, and Communications) working collaboratively, but focused on distinct goals. A key characteristic of volunteers on these committees is a love for Wharton, so join one or all based on your interest.
