Direct access to alums
For the first time, students have barrier-free access to highly-engaged alums around the world in wide-ranging industries and job functions and with diverse interests, experiences, and social identities. Gone are the days of cold-calling and rejection; students get structured, credible professional feedback in real-time and career support that’s always-on.
You have a say in your professional development (the LSA way)
By engaging in the platform, you have the agency to determine how you learn. There is no need to wait until entering the workforce to learn invaluable life skills such as networking, building connections, and growing long-term relationships. LSA Connect is designed to give you ownership and empowerment as you seek your own mentoring experiences. This approach is what liberal arts students are familiar with from the classroom: learning that is self-directed, experimental, and generative.
Uncovering the range of career possibilities
You can discover the range of career possibilities just by witnessing the myriad diverse roles alums hold. See the pathways they’ve carved out, the opportunities they leveraged, the challenges they faced, and the experiences they encountered that led them to where they are now. Follow in their footsteps or forge your own.
Find your people, create your own community
Deepen your connections and cultivate community among alums and students who share similar identities. These identities can be social, economic, gender-based, racial, ethnic, industry specific, and so much more. The platform’s “Groups” feature lets you find your people.
