Opportunities to Engage
Upon graduation, Ingram Scholars join an international network of past Ingram Scholars and are expected to continue to demonstrate leadership in community service and to involve succeeding classes of Ingram Scholars in those activities. Activities include mentoring current scholars, aiding scholars in finding summer service, pursuing post-graduate involvement in service, finding permanent jobs, and continuing to promote and involve students in significant community service.
VISAA Mentorship Program
This program seeks to foster meaningful and productive one-on-one relationships between Ingram alumni (that are at least five years graduated) and current Scholars through the sharing of professional and life experiences. It is centered on the dual goals of strengthening alumni connections with Ingram Scholars as well as placing current Scholars on the path to success.
Ingram Alumni Community of Practice (COP) Program
The COP program provides a forum for alumni to discuss and share knowledge related to various topics on career and service. The discussion should provide a safe space for open discussion and knowledge sharing. Facilitators are open to develop the discussion in any way they deem appropriate, such as by having a set of discussion questions, inviting a speaker, or developing a presentation.
The board is open to topics provided by facilitators but suggest these for consideration.
- Health, Medicine and Society
- Life transitions
- Policy and Law
- Incorporating Service into Career
