Alumni networks can increase student, graduate success: Report

February 4, 2021
A US report on alumni networks has found that these networks can be an important part of boosting student and graduate success. Campus Technology says the report found that students who connected with alumni were “more likely to graduate with the skills and networks they need for success in the workplace,” and advocates for institutions to put alumni in roles where they will interact with students. These include working with students through mentorship, career advice, experiential learning, or as part-time program delivery staff. The report also outlines five areas where alumni networks can make a difference: employment outcomes, technologies, access to alumni connections, flexibility to innovate, and rethinking alumni engagement.
