Alumni-Student Engagement Lunch

ISE has launched our Alumni-Student Engagement Lunch Program. The mission of our program is to enhance the personal and professional development of our students by building long-lasting relationships with our alumni and friends. At the same time, our alumni mentors will:

  • build long-lasting relationships with our students
  • create an employee pipeline for their businesses
  • increase their connectivity with our department

It’s simple. Just take a couple of our students to lunch and share your wisdom and experience by answering their questions in a fun and relaxed environment.
