Volunteer Opportunities

Each year, many Blair alumni generously share their time and expertise in support of the School. We are grateful to those alumni who have volunteered in countless ways since their Blair graduations—the success of the School is due, in large measure, to their dedication and focused efforts.

We invite you to explore alumni volunteer opportunities by clicking on the tabs below. If you have questions, please contact Director of Alumni Relations Shaunna Murphy at (908) 362-6121, ext. 5655, or murphs@blair.edu.

Board of Governors

The purpose of the Alumni Association Board of Governors is to promote a continuing, meaningful and effective relationship between alumni and the School.

The Board acts as an advisory body to the Head of School, with whom they meet regularly, and also focuses on issues related directly to alumni—such as alumni relations, communication, reunions and fundraising.

Reunion Committees

Reunion Committee volunteers work to create meaningful Alumni Weekend experiences for their classmates. Committee members reconnect with classmates, encourage Alumni Weekend attendance and lead their class gift efforts. Blair is grateful to reunion classes for their long tradition of generous donations to the School that commemorate their celebrations and benefit current students and faculty.
