Graziadio Alumni Ambassador Program
Office of Alumni and External Engagement
Share your time and talent with the school and our students. Alumni play a critical
role in the student experience at the Graziadio Business School. Become a Graziadio
Ambassador to share your volunteer interests and expertise. Please know we may not
have a matching volunteer opportunity at the moment, but your interests will be saved
in our volunteer database that is consulted as volunteer opportunities present themselves.
Help promote annual Give2Pepp day, help fund student scholarships, and learn more about our exclusive Executive Associates Program.
Post jobs on the Career Portal, hire students or provide internships, provide off site company visits to students/alumni, or offer informational career interviews to students/alumni.
PeppConnect Online Champion
PeppConnect offers alumni and students the ability to connect with fellow Waves who
have made themselves available to offer professional advice, career opportunities,
and other valuable resources in one convenient location.
Serve as a primary point of peer-to-peer contact for alumni, both in the United States and across international regions of the world by state or country.
Speak at a recruitment event, host a Lunch and Learn, speak with prospective students
on an individual basis, and help to market our Referral Scholarship for a prospective
student to receive a $2,500 scholarship.
