Alumni Mentor Program (For Mentors)
Join the TCCS LinkedIn Group!
Connect with TC students and fellow alumni, exchange information, ideas and opportunities with others in your field, and learn about upcoming TCCS programs & events. Each year, TC alumni from different backgrounds, industries and levels of experience inquire about giving back to the Teachers College community. By joining the TCCS LinkedIn group, you will have the opportunity to meet enthusiastic and talented students who are eager to learn about your field and what you do. You will be able to help TC students develop the skills they need to thrive and succeed in their careers. This group has been designed to assist TC students in making a smooth transition into the workplace and to support their networking skills. Lastly, you will be provided with a platform for you to network with fellow TC alumni.
** ATTENTION: As of Monday, October 1, 2012, this group serves as the new TCCS Alumni Mentoring & Career Networking Program. This means that the former Alumni Mentor Program housed in TCCS LINK is no longer accessible. TCCS is very excited about this transition as this group will significantly enhance your overall networking opportunities! **
