Arts & Science student-alumni mentorship.
The Arts & Science global alumni community now numbers 248,000. Our alumni are among our most passionate ambassadors and strongest supporters. Over this past year, many have given generously of their time and expertise to our students as part of our signature mentorship programs.
We thank our alumni, donors, university partners as well as MBNA, TD and Manulife, our Pillar sponsors, for their support of our programming.
For students, being able to talk openly with our alumni, ask questions, receive guidance and make genuine connections has been immensely valuable as they think about life after university. And our alumni have shared how much they’ve gotten out of the experience, whether it’s reconnecting with their alma mater and making new friends, or meeting prospective employees and discovering a meaningful way to give back. From industry nights to mentorship meals, speed networking evenings to career panels, one-on-one mentoring to job shadowing, “networking without borders” to student recruitment events—Arts & Science alumni around the world are giving our students the tools and the wisdom to confidently face their futures.
This past year, our signature Backpack to Briefcase program won GOLD for Best Alumni Initiative from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education—District II.
