Class Representative Application Form

What is a Class Representative?

The Class Representative Program is a new initiative launched by the University of New Orleans Alumni Association to provide a network of classmates to keep alumni in touch with each other and the University. Class Representatives serve as liaisons between their classmates and the University.

Characteristics of a Class Representative:

  • A registered member of the UNO Alumni Association (registration is free, quick, and easy at www.UNOAlumni.com)
  • A strong commitment to the University of New Orleans
  • An annual financial commitment to the University at any level
  • The ability and drive to network with former classmates through various channels—events, social media (as appropriate), email, phone calls, letter writing, etc.
  • A commitment to this position for multiple years. There is no ‘term limit’ for a Class Representative, however, when a Class Representative is no longer able or interested in fulfilling their duties, they are expected to help recruit their replacement

Serve with a team of Class Representatives to:

  • Encourage classmates to reconnect and stay connected by promoting University news and events
  • Help to plan and promote class reunions and other events throughout the year
  • Inform the UNO Alumni Association about personal news items, such as moves, marriages, family changes, new jobs, and awards and recognitions about classmates
  • Encourage classmates to support the University financially at any level
  • Serve as a host for alumni events by attending and contacting classmates
  • Help the Alumni Association to identify “lost” alumni
  • Be creative and have fun!
