Career Champions

A Tar's Legacy

Career Champions gives alumni an opportunity to continue to build a legacy with new generations of Rollins students.

Rollins Career Champions

Career Champions are alumni who bring real-world, industry-specific expertise back to current students at Rollins. The program empowers alumni to champion for the next generation of leaders by sharing career-related knowledge, advice, and experiences.  These connections will allow students to:

  1. Explore career paths
  2. Build their network
  3. Connect the dots between their Rollins experience and their career aspirations
  4. Prepare for the transition to life after graduation

Rollins Career Champion Programs

A Career Champion can give back to the institution through the following initiatives, with different time commitments:

  • Career Champions Mentor Program – Alumni serve as mentors for sophomores, juniors, or seniors with similar professional interests in this selective, long-term mentoring program.  Alumni and students connect monthly throughout the academic year, and mentees work towards a professional goal.
  • Chat with a Champ – Alumni interact with students to share industry insights through programs such as panels, classroom speaker opportunities, or ‘flash mentoring’, where alumni host brief 1:1 informational interviews in person or via Skype.  These interactions create the potential for lasting professional connections with students.  

Rollins Career Champion Mission

By harnessing the power of the Rollins alumni network and the deeply relational nature of the Rollins education, students will have increased knowledge and connections to prepare for reaching their post-graduate aspirations. Alumni will enjoy the opportunity to make a tangible impact on the Rollins community.
