Extraordinary Programs and Opportunities

Throughout the calendar year, the OSPGD's Alumni Advising & Development Team delivers innovative programming which helps alumni articulate the value of their liberal arts education, acquire valuable professional development skills, make connections within the Franklin & Marshall community, and gain exposure to new opportunities and resources.  Below you can learn more about upcoming events and alumni programming. 

 

F&M Alumni Partnerships 

  • ospgd cover

This program pairs F&M alumni for a six-month mentorship.  This program is unique in that it is designed to develop and enhance the skills of both mentor and mentee.  Mentor education is part of this program, and a mentor coach is available to each mentor.  Mentors commit to monthly conversations with mentees for the purpose of supporting the development of mentees in ways that are meaningful to the goals of the mentee.   Please contact Tammy Halstead, Director of Alumni Advising and Development, for further information.  

 

F&M Career Circle for Alumnae

  • career circle

What is a career circle?  A career circle allows for a dedicated space and time for a group of women to gather for dialogue, support, discussion, mentorship, learning, and sharing about topics related to our own professional and career development.  It is a series of facilitated conversations with a group of dedicated, engaged women who want to grow with and learn from each other.   This group is for you, so topics are finalized in the first session.  
The Circle meets once each month for 6 months and sessions run in the evenings for 2 hours each.  To learn about upcoming Career Circles, please contact Tammy Halstead.

Sponsored by the Council for Women of F&M and Facilitated by the Office of Student & Post-Graduate Development
