Get involved 

The Alumni Affairs office is 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 association to meet the needs of our alumni. Remaining connected to Webster and other alumni may open doors that would otherwise remain closed.

Our Leiden Alumni Chapter and Webster University rely, to a large extent, on the help of volunteers. For a small organization like ours, volunteer work is the basis for many services that we offer. Thus, we need you! The rewards you will receive for the contribution to our community are the chance to meet new and interesting people and, of course, the gratitude of the Webster Community. There are many ways in which you can volunteer your time to the alumni association while having fun. 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 and Career Events
  • Alumni events

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 partner 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.
