  2. Provide students with opportunities for professional development, networking, and information/idea exchange with professionals in their academic area.
  3. Provide opportunities for alumni to connect with Clarion University and play a notable role in current students' future endeavors.
  4. Establish partnerships between alumni and students to facilitate career exploration and career coaching.
