UChicagoWisr Network

Sign up to mentor students and find fellow alumni to network with. Join a community, schedule a phone call, or chat with the Maroon network.

In partnership with UChicago Career Advancement, UChicago Alumni is proud to offer 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 careers.

Make a difference by signing up to mentor a UChicago student today. The first step is to create an account on the Wisr platform and fill out a profile. In a few weeks, you will be receiving meeting requests from students. A little bit of guidance can change a student’s life forever.
