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. Opportunities to interact more closely with current Scholars include the VISAA Mentorship Program, and assisting Scholars with: finding summer service, pursuing post-graduate involvement in service, finding permanent jobs, and continuing to promote and involve students in meaningful service endeavors.
VISAA Mentorship Program
This program serves to foster meaningful, personal, and productive relationships between Ingram Scholar alumni 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. See guidelines here.
Local Ingram Alumni Reunions
Host an Ingram alumni gathering in your city! To help Ingram Scholars stay connected after graduation, we support our alumni (both financially and logistically) in hosting informal regional gatherings across the country. Our hope is that these gatherings eventually lay the foundation for regional Ingram alumni chapters. For more information, please reach out to our incredible Program Manager, Anne Gordon!
Alumni Reflection Groups
After consulting with Ingram alumni, our professional team has decided to reinstitute monthly "Reflection Groups," led by former Scholars. This forum will not only provide current Scholars with an additional opportunity to develop relationships with our alumni, but it also gives former Scholars an opportunity to reflect on - and engage with - current affairs and societal issues through the lens of the Ingram Scholars Program.
We are always searching for new and meaningful ways to involve alumni in our curricula. If you have a suggestion for additional alumni programming, please don't hesitate to reach out!
