Corporate Chapters
Connect | Grow | Serve

The John Carroll University Alumni Association Corporate Chapter initiative aims to create opportunities for alumni to connect, grow, and serve together in the workplace.

Connect: Corporate Chapters offer alumni working for the same organization the opportunity to come together for social events and foster relationships that will benefit them personally and professionally.

Grow: Corporate Chapters provide alumni with professional development opportunities through in-office speakers and seminars.

Serve: Corporate Chapters bring alumni together to give back – to their organization, their community, and the University.

Starting a Corporate Chapter:

  • 10 or more alumni working for the same organization
  • Corporate Chair (alumnus/a who is willing to act as the intermediary between the Office of Alumni Relations/Alumni Association Board and the relevant leadership at the organization)

Possible Corporate Chapter Initiatives and Opportunities:

  • Increased employee engagement and leadership opportunities
  • Awareness of fellow JCU alumni working at the same company
  • On-site coffee socials with JCU alumni and staff to start the work day
  • “Lunch and Learn” with JCU professors and academic experts
  • Happy Hours and networking events
  • Intern-for-a-Day Partnership with the JCU Student Alumni Association
  • Campus partnership opportunities
