Volunteering
The Alumni Affairs office and the Leiden Alumni Chapter are always looking for volunteers for a broad variety of activities. This is a great way of meeting new and interesting people as well as helping the chapter to meet the needs of our alumni. Remaining connected to Webster and other alumni may open doors that would otherwise remain closed.

If you are interested in joining us for any of the activities or supporting us at an event, please contact our Alumni Affairs office at alumni@webster.nl. You can become a volunteer in programs and events such as:

  • The Alumni Chapter Leiden
  • The Mentoring Program
  • Open Days
  • Career Events
  • Alumni events
  • Guest-lectures

Giving
As a private, non-profit, non-commercial foundation, Webster University, Leiden finances its operations solely through student tuition and receives no government financial support. Yet, tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of a Webster education. To ensure that we can continue to offering the most advanced methods of teaching, we are grateful for any contribution towards Webster’s mission. We would like to invite you to collaborate with us.

For example, you could provide students with a scholarship, sponsor an Alumni Event, or contribute to Career Planning & Development. We are also deeply appreciative of and thus openly welcome Unrestricted Funds or Gifts-in. Your support is an investment in the world’s future leaders!

Every gift matters. Thank you
