Resources and Opportunities for Alumni

With a network of over 25,000 alumni, you are never alone after leaving SIS. Learn more about ways to mentor and give back to the students who came after you and build on the work of those who came before. SIS is not just a school, we're a community where you can find and make connections that follow you wherever your career takes you. 

Connect and Give Back

Not sure what you can do, but know you want to give back? Fill out this interest survey and let us know more about you. Then we'll contact you when we have a program coming up that might be a good fit. 

You can always email Claudia Coscia to express interest and learn more about opportunities to support SIS students!

The SIS Mentoring Program is offered through the SIS Office of Career Development and connects students with alumni mentors for one academic year. Our volunteer mentors help students explore post-graduation pathways, learn how to create networks that support their goals, and move towards their next professional steps. Meet amazing current students and give back to your community by volunteering to be an alumni Mentor.

Get involved

Do you have experience in a niche topic or interesting area? Do you want to share your expertise with current students? Are you ready to give back but not sure where you can start? 

Let us know and we can help you find the best fit to participate in one of our programs. Offer insights on an alumni panel, table a booth at the Career Fair, meet students for coffee and chat about their career paths.

Contact Claudia Coscia,, for more information.

Many of our students rely on their alumni connections to get jobs and internships in the field. You may have a similar story yourself, from when you were a student! If you have opportunities that current students would be interested in, share those opportunities with our employer relations activities! Even if you aren't the one hiring, help students grow their skills and make those important connections through employer activities.

Industry Site Visits are in-person visits at the office of an industry employer. These educational trips offer students the opportunity to meet with professionals at an organization, learn more about that organizations work and opportunities, and prepare to engage in professional workspaces before entering their careers.

In the past we've visited:

  • Brookings Institution
  • D3 Systems
  • American Bar Association, Rule of Law Initiative
  • McLarty Associates
  • World Resources Institute, and many more

We rely on our alumni to help us identify and work with their employers to host successful Site Visits. If you think a trip to your company's office would be beneficial to our students, let us know! We'd love to come and see where you work!
