Alumni experiences can connect and inspire students
Christian Garcia, Associate Dean and Executive Director of the Toppel Career Center, noted alumni loved sharing their stories, but didn’t have a way to do that. Enter PeopleGrove. Students could forge connections with alumni and peers seamlessly.
“We approached the university and said, ‘We think there’s some value that we can add in terms of this vast Jayhawk network,’” David said. “Alumni are eager and willing to give back, and that’s what we brought to the table.”
As the Alumni Association began their partnership with PeopleGrove, they knew they wanted to provide their members with career advancement programs, including access to flexible connections, targeted networking, and traditional career services.
