Make a Difference by Mentoring a UChicago Student

UChicago is making it easier than ever for alumni to help current students find a fulfilling career path! A 15 or 30-minute conversation can change a student's life forever!

In partnership with the UChicago Career Advancement Department, the Alumni Association is proud to introduce a new mentoring program powered by Wisr, a professional networking platform founded by Kathryn J. Volzer, AB’09, MBA’14.

Wisr is an engagement platform that makes it easy for alumni to connect with and guide current students toward a fulfilling career path through automated matching, scheduling, and follow-up communications. Wisr lets students request 15—30 minute conversations with alumni to learn about different career paths, industries, skills they need to succeed, and even what classes they should take. By sharing just a little bit of their time, alumni can help students get on the right track, early in their college career.

This new initiative will launch in February 2017. However, we are hoping you will sign-up today, so we can include you in our initial mentoring sessions.
