Friedman School Featured Alumni

Schedule a Conversation with an Alumni Volunteer Today!

Featured Alumni engage in “flash-mentoring” with current Friedman School students, i.e., short conversations that provide knowledge or skill development. All meetings are 30 minutes and take place via Zoom (with a call-in option).

The Featured Alumni are organized by our 7 Career Directions below. When you click into an alumni profile, you’ll see a link to schedule a meeting with the individual via Calendly. After scheduling, you’ll receive a meeting confirmation with Zoom details. We’ll be adding new times — and new Featured Alumni — on a regular basis, so check back often! *Don’t see a time that works for you? We encourage you to browse different alumni profiles to connect with another individual.
