Flyer Recruitment Program

No one can speak to the Flyer experience better than a UD grad.

The Flyer Recruitment Program provides opportunities for passionate alumni to recruit a talented and diverse population of future Flyers. As a volunteer, you can use your own personal UD experience and provided training, to speak to the benefits of campus life and the value of a degree from UD.

Eligible volunteers must:

  • Hold a degree from the University. Preference will be given to those with undergraduate degrees, but alumni with graduate degrees that feel knowledgeable and able to speak to the undergraduate experiences on campus may participate.
  • Be committed to growing a diverse student population, enjoy interacting with others and have excitement for sharing their Flyer pride.
  • Have the time to fulfill the role and complete any follow-up requested.
  • Follow guidelines (PDF) set by the National Association of College Admissions Counseling.
  • Not be the guardian of a child applying to UD or going through the application cycle.
  • Alumni who are college admission professionals or, independent or community college counselors are not eligible to volunteer for the Flyer Recruitment Program.

Volunteer Opportunities for Alumni

Through personalized outreach, volunteers congratulate admitted students, answer questions, encourage students to participate through in person and digital events, and share personal experiences from their time at UD. Volunteers will be asked to call and text approximately 10 - 15 admitted students between February and April. Additionally, volunteers may have the opportunity to send postcards to incoming students the summer before classes start. Individuals can volunteer from any location.

Volunteers will be asked to review the Flyer Champion Handbook, participate in a digital training session, and be committed to fulfilling role requirements in a timely fashion. Training sessions will be offered in December and January, volunteers only need to attend one 1-hour training.
