Alumni and students now have a dedicated online community to connect for networking, mentoring, interprofessional groups, and discussion boards.
The community, UNMC Alumni Connections, is managed by the Alumni Relations Office and was created in partnership with industry leader, PeopleGrove. It was first made available to alumni earlier this month.
Individuals who are interested in signing up may visit https://connections.unmcalumni.org and join the community via LinkedIn (if already signed up on that site), their UNMC NETID, or email.
Alumni – this is the opportunity for you to connect with classmates, others in your profession or other UNMC alumni, no matter their location. This is also your connection point to students; to offer insight through short or long-term mentoring. Students are especially encouraged to take advantage of this unique resource to help build professional connections, find a mentor, and further their professional growth while still at UNMC. Student users will then have the opportunity to continue utilizing the community after the transition from student to alumnus.
For questions or assistance logging into the platform, individuals can reach out to Kat Hamilton in the Alumni Relations Office.
We are excited to hear what you think of this innovative new engagement platform and look forward to seeing the connections you make
