Alumni Workplace Engagement (AWE) brings together Rutgers graduates who work within the same company, empowering them to network, take part in career growth opportunities, and strengthen both their employer and their ties to their alma mater.

As a Rutgers graduate, you have a lot to gain by interacting with scarlet coworkers, no matter where you are in your career. Likewise, corporations also benefit from bringing together a strong Rutgers cohort because it promotes collaboration, team building, and mentoring.
