WVU Connect: By the Numbers

Have you logged into yet? You might want to check it out!

Just a few months into its launch, WVU Connect has been a powerful force by engaging Mountaineers in professional development, intentional mentorship, and social connection. In the spirit of empowering Mountaineers to help Mountaineers, we have seen the impact that our community can have when helping one other find paths to success.

Even in these early stages, we have seen exceptional numbers of WVU Alumni volunteering to serve as mentors, give back to the community, and support the professional development of others. Take a look at some of the numbers below:

933 : The number of Mountaineers of who have said they’re willing to support WVU recruitment initiatives in their region

922: The number of Mountaineers who are willing to give a testimonial or speak with students and alumni

882: The number of Mountaineers who would like to volunteer at local and national events with other WVU alumni

839: The number of Mountaineers who are willing to review a resume and provide feedback to students or alumni

679: The number of Mountaineers who would be happy to discuss internships and jobs with potential interested candidates

672 : The number of Mountaineers who would have coffee in their region with other WVU students and/or alumni

As we continue to share WVU Connect with our community, these numbers will only continue to grow. If you’re looking to get connected in one of the initiatives listed above, you can update your profile on WVU Connect under the “Me” tab. If you’d like to connect with other Mountaineers who have volunteered to be mentors, head to the “Directory” tab and use the criteria on the right side of the screen to search.

We are just getting started and we can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2018. I look forward to seeing you on!

Let’s Go!
