Alumni

Welcome to Alumni Career & Professional Development! Our team offers support for alumni in all phases of their professional lives. Check out all of our service offerings and resources below.

Alumni who graduated within the last year from a graduate or undergraduate program still have full access to the suite of services offered by their respective career services offices. Access those services exactly as you did as a student. If you graduated from the Sturm College of Law, the Daniels College of Business or earned a graduate degree from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, you receive lifetime services from the career center in that school. Reach out directly to those offices via the above links. Alumni who are current DU employees may also make an appointment with the Human Resources & Inclusive Community Manager of Talent and Culture at mia.elizardi@du.edu.
