Alumni Who Give Their Time and Experience
Becoming a Pearson College UWC graduate opens up an entire world of connections to continue living the UWC Mission throughout one’s lifetime. One important way of living the mission is for “present alumni” to pass on their life experiences with “future alumni.”
Increasingly, more and more of our alumni are coming back to campus – not only for a visit or a reunion, but often with the deliberate intention of sharing with current students some of the wisdom and experience they have acquired since leaving the College. Pearson encourages former students to come back and become short-term educators formally through our Alumni-in- Residence Program and informally through engagement opportunities like on-campus speaking opportunities, discussion groups or just being available to talk with young leaders on campus at “Life After Pearson” sessions. We encourage you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org first if this interests you.
The College’s Alumni Relations also works with alumni interested in establishing a mentorship relationship with current or graduating students or taking part from their home communities in virtual Career Café panel discussions. Again, contact email@example.com for more information.
In the meantime, check out our Alumni-in-Residence blog for a look at some of the comments and experiences shared by past participants in this program.
