LynxConnect and the Office of Alumni Relations is launching the Alumni-in-Residence (AIR) program to connect students with accomplished alumni for one-on-one or small group career and industry advice. Students can sign up for a 30-minute in-person or Zoom appointment in a dedicated working space to ask specific career questions or to solicit general advice from someone who has walked in their shoes.
The Alumni-in-Residence program will run from September through November and from February through April, hosting 1-2 alumni per month. The first Alumni-in-Residence is Alumni Board President Natriece Bryant, Communication BA 2002 and Sociology MA 2007. She will be in the LynxConnect space on September 15, 21, and 29. In October, the in AIR will be international alum, life coach, and TEDx speaker Marta Spirk and photographer and business owner Shameka McBoat – dates and times coming soon.
Please share widely with students, and if you have engaged alumni that would be a good fit for this program please contact Lauren Jacobs, Associate Director of Alumni Engagement in the Office of Advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
