Career Resources & Opportunities

​​As part of CU Denver Alumni's strategic plan, we aim to be considered the gateway for alumni career resources that leverage the shared CU Denver experience to nurture meaningful, professional connections:
  • Create events, programs, and resources that showcase the professional benefit of connecting with fellow CU Denver alumni, position graduates as career experts through volunteer oppo​rtunities to share their expertise, and provide a pathway for continued engagement with the university
  • Implement a campus-wide mentorship and knowledge-sharing program using KnowledgeLynx to facilitate meaningful connections between our campus' students and the entire CU Denver alumni community.
  • Facilitate informal communities to create spaces for alumni to interact with each other, within their professional industries
