The Personalized Connections and Community Model: A Partnership between University of Maryland University College (UMUC) and PeopleGrove
Concurrent Session 5
Mentorship and advising relationships are shown to improve student success and career outcomes. Today's online learners long to supplement their learning with real-world advisers and experts.
But how do we make these connections both virtual and personal at the same time?
Join us to learn how the University of Maryland, University College (UMUC) and PeopleGrove have partnered to launch CareerQuest, exemplifying a new paradigm -- The Personalized Connections and Community Model.
Many are questioning the value of a college education. Only half of US alumni strongly agree their education was worth the cost. Why? The way students value and experience their education has changed. They have new expectations:
- Job outcomes, not just a degree
- Social and digital, not isolated and static
- Experiential, not theoretical
Additionally, supportive relationships most influenced, even doubled, graduates’ perception that their education was worth the cost (source: Gallup). Discover how PeopleGrove and UMUC have partnered to provide students and alumni with personalized career connections and mentoring opportunities at scale, enhancing career outcomes and driving student success.
