The Alumni Network Alumni are Asking For

Alumni want more from their alma mater. Addressing their needs can pay off.

Avenues for lifelong support

Job opportunities, career support, and non-financial ways to give back, including mentoring, are the top requests alumni make in nationwide surveys. With PeopleGrove’s Career Access Platform™, it’s easy for universities to provide all, lighting the way for lifelong support and giving.

Where alumni own their story

Learning doesn’t end with graduation. That’s why alumni consistently rank career networking as the top area alumni associations “could better support.” They’re knowledge-seekers and knowledge-sharers, looking to grow in their careers (with help from alumni relations) and wanting to be a mentoring resource for others. PeopleGrove makes it easy for alumni to do both.
