The Office of Alumni Development presents a monthly webinar series offered FREE to all alumni and students. Each episode is designed to provide insight and advice on how to succeed both personally and professionally.
Donating your time and talent to a cause that you are passionate about helps others and makes your life more fulfilling, but did you know it can also help your career? Volunteering can give you the opportunity to try out a new field, build on your current strengths or acquire some new ones. With our busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. Join us on December 13th to learn more about why you should start making time – not just to help you grow personally but professionally as well.
