R.ED Connect

Alumni and students desire meaningful careers. Students are eager to find jobs, and employers want great talent. Linking students and alumni together is where R.ED Connect comes in. The UCM Alumni Foundation and Career Services have teamed up to help students navigate the post-graduation career landscape and to help you as alumni, whether you are exploring careers, seeking new positions, recruiting interns or employees or developing your professional network.

R.ED Connect also is about alumni volunteer opportunities, connecting students with our alumni who work in such a great variety of industries to share their real-world advice and experiences.

There are many ways to engage in the life of your alma mater. How will you choose to connect?
