Alison R. Bernstein Media Mentoring Program (ARBMMP) seeks Rutgers alumni in media, journalism, communications, or technology.  The ARBMMP is an annual program addressing the underrepresentation of women in leadership, production, and creative roles across media and information technology platforms by examining gender-based barriers to professional development. Over 9 months, mentees (Rutgers alums in the early stages of their careers) are paired with mentors (experienced professionals) to set goals and navigate the industry through one-on-one mentoring sessions.  The program participants can attend personal and professional development workshops hosted at Rutgers and build a network that will stay with them throughout their careers.

For information and application, are available here or contact Nishi Shah, Program Coordinator, at arbmmp@iwl.rutgers.edu.

Alumni Groups and Clubs – The opportunities are endless when Rutgers alumni come together for a common purpose or interest. Alumni groups are officially chartered organizations run by dedicated alumni volunteers in affiliation with the Rutgers University Alumni Association. There are various volunteer opportunities, from leadership to attending an event and everything in between.  Visit the full listing of groups to find out more https://alumni.rutgers.edu/get-involved/clubs-and-groups/

Alumni Senator of the Rutgers University Senate is the only advisory and legislative body representing the entire community of faculty, students, staff, administrators, and alumni to the Rutgers’ president and boards. The University Senate sets the university calendar, regulates the relationships between the various disciplines, and advises the president and the Board of Governors on virtually every major academic and policy question affecting the Rutgers community.

Board leadership seeks applications for diverse and enthusiastic individuals who would enhance the dynamics of the board by bringing knowledge and experience in one or more of the following categories—leadership, governance, program development, higher education, digital engagement, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)—and other areas that would help the Rutgers University Alumni Association board further its mission.
