Fraternity & Sorority Alumni
Alumni Support Opportunities
Robert Morris University agrees that fraternity and sorority membership is a lifelong experience and encourages our alumni to stay involved with their chapter. The university supports alumni involvement by coordinating with chapters on Homecoming tailgate parties or providing training for alumni volunteers serving chapters as advisors.
- Advisement - research shows that no matter the institution, relationships and mentoring matters most for students to be successful. We support all chapters in identifying and training alumni to serve the chapters as advisors and mentors. If you are interested in assisting your chapter on our campus, please contact your chapter's inter/national headquarters.
- Networking & Job/Internship Assistance - the university believes fraternity and sorority membership is a lifelong commitment and we wish to support fraternity and sorority members connect with current students to assist with professional networking and assistance with placement for internships and employment. If you are interested in Greek alumni networking events or would like to assist current students in fraternity and sorority chapters find internships or professional employment, please contact the Office of Student Life.
- Financial Support - for those alumni who wish to financially support the fraternity/sorority experience at RMU, there are several ways you can designate your financial donation to the university to honor your experience. Unfortunately, at this time the university can't accept gifts earmarked for a specific chapter. However, several chapters have scholarship endowments with RMU.
Fraternity & Sorority Leadership Fund
RMU alumni can now support their alma mater while also supporting the university's Greek community. The Fraternity & Sorority Leadership Fund provides program support for leadership development for RMU undergraduate students in a fraternity or sorority. The fund also supports student travel to national leadership conferences, funding to bring speakers or leadership programs to campus, and augment the registration costs of leadership conferences and national conventions.
In 2013-2014, the Fraternity & Sorority Leadership Fund was used to support:
