The CONNECT program continues to be a shining example of student-alumni engagement. This experience is open to all students, regardless of academic year or major.

CONNECT started in New York and ― because of its popularity and the value it has for students and alumni ― has expanded to other markets.

CONNECT took place in Washington, D.C., and Boston in April. Just as in New York, students were on recess and there were employer treks and networking receptions. Washington employer sites included D.C. Public Schools, the U.S. Capitol, Element Solutions, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, and the Federal Reserve Board. In Boston, students visited RSM, Amazon Robotics and Delsys.

In May, to kick off summer break, CONNECT was held in the Silicon Valley. Students visited Handshake, Cisco, PwC, NVIDIA, Google and Tesla.

CONNECT is a partnership between the Office of Alumni Engagement and the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development.
