Meet the Alumni Outreach Committee

The Law, Societies, and Justice Alumni Outreach Committee seeks to cultivate meaningful relationships between past and present scholars. Through social, intellectual, and service-based events, the Outreach Committee creates opportunities for program alumni to reconnect and share their knowledge and experience not only with fellow alumni but with future generations of LSJ graduates.

What We Do

Events

The Outreach Committee hosts three main events every year: a social mixer designed to foster relationships between LSJ alumni as well as to maintain their connection to the LSJ program; an intellectual event where past and present LSJ scholars can apply their academic and career-based experiences to current law and social justice-related issues; and a service event designed to bring students and alumni together as they create positive change in our community.

Mentoring

The Outreach Committee endeavors to provide current LSJ students with alumni guidance as they navigate their undergraduate careers and look ahead to life after graduation. Not only can students connect with alumni through the events mentioned above, but they have the opportunity to ask questions and build individual relationships with the LSJ alumni featured on our “Life as a LSJ Alum” page.

What You Can Do

The Outreach Committee is always looking for new members to assist with event planning and mentoring. If you would like to volunteer your time and talents, we would love for you to join us! Please contact us at lsjuwalumni@gmail.com if you have any questions or would like to become a member of the Committee.
