A Web of Connections

Alumni who want to connect with the university should make the Carnegie Mellon alumni Web site, their first stop. Here's why:

  • Email Forwarding: Your account allows you to have a permanent email home on the Internet. No matter where you go, you will always be reachable here.
  • Alumni Online Directory: Find and contact fellow alumni in your area and search for friends you lost touch with.
  • Alumni Online Career Center: The online career center is your portal to the many professional services offered to alumni. If you are looking to develop your professional network, register with the Alumni Career Advisor Network (ACAN) and get connected.
  • Community: Alumni can also reconnect through regional alumni chapters, class and reunion committees, affinity groups, and college and school alumni activities.

There are many different ways for you to stay connected to the Carnegie Mellon community and the INI. Alumni may be in the position to connect INI students with full-time job or internship opportunities. If you are pursuing a career in the fields affilitated with the INI, you could potentially participate in an alumni mentoring program to provide advice, insight or simply an understanding ear for current students who are pursuing graduate degrees in the INI's programs. Alumni may also be interested in sponsoring fellowships and research projects.
