Graduate Alumni/ae

Graduate alumni, we invite you to join the GradFUTURES initiative! You can play a critical role in inspiring current students along their professional development journey by serving as aspirational role models, connectors, mentors and advocates. There are many ways graduate alumni/ae can meaningfully engage with the University, the Graduate School, their departments, and with current graduate students. 

Here are just a few of the many ways you can help make a difference:

  • Serve as a panelist or facilitator at one of our professional development programs
  • Volunteer to be interviewed for an alumni career video series
  • Host graduate students at your organization for an Industry Exploration Day or shadowing
  • Arrange an immersive experience such as a short-term project, fellowship or summer internship for a current student at your organization
  • Volunteer to mentor graduate students
  • Participate in Alumni Day Storytelling workshop with graduate students during Alumni Day or Reunions weekend
  • Participate in or host a Research on the Road event to have graduate students present their research to alumni in your region or city
  • Connect graduate students with others in your professional network (a LinkedIn page for the Graduate School is coming soon)
  • Join us for the GradFUTURES Professional Development Forum on May 1, 2020, or participate virtually (more details coming soon!)
