Alumni Engagement

Overview:

Many alumni want to connect with students but don’t know where to start.  We welcome your participation, and invite you to share insights from your career and your education with current undergraduates.  Share reflections on your own liberal arts education, provide career coaching or share industry knowledge to assist current undergraduate students in the Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences with their career exploration, planning, and networking.

Ways to get involved:

Panels:  We host a series of panel discussions to help Weinberg undergraduate students learn about different careers, to understand the ways their liberal arts education is preparing them for life after Northwestern, and to connect with alumni in different careers. 

Career Treks:  Each reading week, we take a small group of students downtown to experience a Chicago business firsthand.  We meet with alumni who work in a particular industry, learn more about that field, and give the students the opportunity to ask questions and get an in-depth look at a particular business.

Small Group Discussions:  We host programs where one alumnus will lead a career exploration conversation with a small group of students to go further in depth on what is important to consider when thinking about a career in their industry.

Yes, I want to get involved!
