Below are some additional insights gathered by alumni Ralph Basile, John Skipper and TJ Wilson during a Zoom call initiated by the Chapter’s Executive Council (EC) after they provided the attached chapter update letter:
A few years ago, the Nu Prime Alumni Association established a mentorship program to aid the chapter actives ease their way into the workplace. At its most active period, about 40 alumni volunteered and were partnered with actives. However, as actives graduated, few new replacement pairings of actives and alumni were established to allow the mentorship program to grow and thrive.
TJ Wilson, our newly appointed Alumni Advisor who is working closely with the VT chapter, has made a great suggestion:
“Rather than hitch an alumnus to an active that will be moving on in whatever number of years, we set the Alumni up more like a permanent resource available to all the active brothers and newly graduated brothers, as necessary. So, there are certain Alumni available continuously as a subject matter expert in their particular field - Finance, Engineering, Business, Communications, Architecture, general / life studies, etc.
That way, whether the active is graduating or not is irrelevant. The Alumni will be available for however long they wish to participate and available to all active brothers and even newly graduated brothers. If there are more than one alumnus willing to participate, they can join in and add multiple voices to the mentoring.
We could provide the active chapter with an updated list each quarter that includes contact information and the active and alum would coordinate each phone call, zoom meeting, lunch (if and when that's feasible), etc.”
