Volunteering opportunities for Notre Dame Alumni

When you share your time and expertise, you enrich the lives of everyone at the University – and the experience gives you so much back.

There are many ways you can volunteer, from organising a class reunion, sharing your story and talents at alumni events, mentoring a student or becoming an alumni leader in your region or country.

Current opportunities

  • Survey Participation: Mentoring experiences of Early Career Teachers in Western Australia

    Alumni of the School of Education are invited to take part in a survey to support the PhD research of Nancy Bonfiglio, whose study on Mentoring Experiences of Early Career Teachers requires feedback from alumni currently teaching as ECTs. Nancy is conducting the study as part of her Doctor of Philosophy research at The University of Notre Dame Australia, Fremantle.

    Mentoring has a significant influence on professional and skills development, yet relatively little is known about ECT’s mentoring experiences in Western Australia. Sharing your experiences will help inform important strategies to assist future ECTs and those who support them. Your participation is greatly valued.

    Do you qualify as an ECT to take part? The anonymous questionnaire takes 10-15 minutes to complete with the option of also participating in a separate interview should you wish to volunteer. Full details on the research and survey can be downloaded here.

    The online survey can be completed here.

    Any questions relating to the research should be directed to nunziatina.bonfiglio@my.nd.edu.au or Professor Caroline Mansfield via email.


  • Nursing and Midwifery Alumni Mentoring - Expressions of Interest

    Following the CPD Webinars for Early Career Mentors, the School of Nursing and Midwifery and Notre Dame Nursing Society are taking expressions of interest from alumni who are interested in joining the Mentoring Program for 2021.

    A great mentor listens, reflects and challenges their mentee as they draw on their experiences working in the industry. You may only be a recent graduate but have a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips, or you may be established in your career and be looking to give back to your community and industry.

    Nurses and Midwifes are all encouraged to register for these webinar opportunities ahead of applying for the mentorship program, launching 2021.

    Does this sound like an opportunity for you? Email us at alumni@nd.edu.au to be kept informed of the 2021 program launch.
