Student & Alumnae Engagement


Student & Alumnae Engagement


The Office of Student and Alumnae Engagement aims to connect all Douglass alumnae to the college, current students, and each other. Through engaging programs, volunteer opportunities, and traditional college events, alumnae will have an opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with students and join a lifelong tradition of giving back to their alma mater.


Volunteer Opportunities:


Connect with Douglass Students This Spring
