In partnership with the UChicago Career Advancement Department, the Alumni Association is proud to introduce the new mentoring program called the UChicagoWisr Network, a professional networking platform founded by Kathryn J. Volzer, AB’09, MBA’14.

Wisr is an engagement platform that makes it easy for alumni to connect with and guide current students toward a fulfilling career path through automated matching, scheduling, and follow-up communications. Wisr lets students request 15—30 minute conversations with alumni to learn about different career paths, industries, skills they need to succeed, and even what classes they should take. By sharing just a little bit of their time, alumni can help students get on the right track, early in their college career.

Make a Difference by Mentoring a UChicago Student! The next step is to create an account on the Wisr platform and fill out a profile, in a few weeks you will be receiving meeting request from students!

UChicago is making it easier than ever for alumni to help current students find a fulfilling career path! A 15 or 30-minute conversation can change a student's life forever!
