Broad Connect

Building the Broad College community through mentoring and purposeful connections

Broad Connect was created to foster relationships between current and future Spartan business leaders. The global Broad College alumni network spans nearly 80,000 professionals across countless industries, meaning that there are limitless opportunities for both mentors and mentees to learn something from one another.

As an alum, you have the opportunity to inspire current Broad business students. You can chime in and answer questions posed by students, accept a mentee for long-term mentorship or connect once with a student to share your insight. In addition to mentoring a student, you can connect with fellow alumni and expand your professional network.

The most successful mentor connection – for both students and alumni – is approached with an open mind, respect, honesty and clear expectations for what you hope to get out of the mentoring connection.

Share your time, talent or treasure.

Each year, hundreds of Broad College alumni give back to build sustainable connections for the college, current students and other alumni. We encourage all alumni to take the opportunity to match your skills and interests to choose how you want to get involved.

With so many opportunities, you can invest in Broad at a level that is most comfortable for you. You may simply want to receive the college newsletter or participate occasionally in a special event such as Homecoming or a local networking event — or return to campus for a Broad College Executive Development Program.

Or you might want to become more active and help to recruit and hire Broad graduates, speak to student groups, host student corporate visits, or hold an official position on an alumni advisory board. A gift to the college is another important and transformational way that you can be a part of the Broad alumni community.

However you choose to invest in Broad, your involvement is highly valued by the entire Broad alumni community.
