Code of Conduct and Confidentiality

The success of the UNLV Alumni Association depends on a network of volunteers serving in a variety of roles. We value our volunteers and work to create programs and services to support and enhance your involvement. This code of conduct and confidentiality has been established to help the association fulfill its mission and support the vision and goals of UNLV and the association in an ethical manner.

Volunteers must commit to work together in the best interests of the association and the university and not for personal, political, third-party, or financial gain.

  • Serve as a positive representative for the association and the university by conducting yourself in an informed, appropriate, and professional manner.
  • Prepare for and actively participate in your volunteer assignment.
  • Acknowledge and respect other volunteers and their contributions, talents, efforts, and dignity. Treat all volunteers equally as peers.
