Giving your time
Many alumni give back to Loughborough by sharing their career experiences with students by giving guest lectures, offering interview tips, sitting on panels or sharing their story in an online profile.
Guest lectures and panel events
Working alongside our Careers Network, Loughborough Enterprise Network, academic departments and the Students’ Union, alumni support student development by sharing their expertise and experiences with students across a range of areas.
In recent months, we have had guest lectures on careers in the creative industries, human resources, business, sport and more.
We also run a series of topical panels. In the last year, alumni have given students insight into “Being LGBT+ in the Workplace”, “Women in STEM”, “Women in Business” and “Collaborative Thinking”.
If you are interested in offering your expertise, please let us know. We’ll be in touch when we have suitable opportunities.
As part of our alumni events programme, we also call on our alumni to get involved with events for fellow graduates.
In early 2019, four alumni came together to form a panel on “An Insight into International Business”, held at the Shard in London.
If you could support us by offering premises suitable for drinks receptions and alumni gatherings, please get in touch.
Share your story
Success stories are a great way to show students and prospective students where their degree could lead them, and they help to keep members of the Alumni Association updated with stories of fellow graduates.
We’re looking for stories about achievements such as winning an award, releasing a book or high-level career appointments. We also share stories of entrepreneurial success, alumni working together, Loughborough family stories and more!
If you have an interesting or unusual career journey or have a news story to share, get in touch.
If you have any questions or ideas about getting involved with the University and giving back, please contact us.
