Exceptional Connections

Active Programs


Exceptional Connections is a program specifically designed to make connections between Mount Union alumni, faculty and friends with Mount Union students to provide career mentoring.

This joint effort between the offices of Alumni Engagement and Career Development provides an opportunity for alumni and professionals from all over the world to actively connect to make a difference in the lives of our current students as they navigate their career choices and begin to make the important decisions beyond their years at Mount.

Our alumni base consists of an amazing pool of talent. Mount Union's more than 17,000 alumni and friends span the globe in many diverse career fields.  The University's intent is that these individuals will use their education and experience to help students take their first steps toward career success.  Exceptional Connections allows willing Purple Raiders to register to be a part of the career networking process.

Upon registering, alumni are able to offer up their time and talent on a level that works for their lives. This program is all about building a network within the Mount Union family that will help us to help each other. Take a minute to learn how you can make a difference today.

It’s as easy as register and connect

Alumni and professionals: take a few minutes to input their career and location information as well as sign up for the types of connections that fit their lifestyle. Students search for registered professionals in specific programs such as networking or shadowing and then further filter results by major, career, location or position.  Students may then request to connect with the alumni and friends they find on the site.  Exceptional Connections will automatically send an email indicating a connection is requested which the professional then has the opportunity to accept or reject by logging into their account on the website.

Students will also log on, establish their own profile and share careers that are of interest to them. They can then view our listing of willing alumni and professionals in those fields or in a specific geographical area, click on their profile and request a connection. Once the alum or professional approves, the student takes the next step to make contact with the alum.  It’s that simple.

Be a part of something big, help our students and alumni make Exceptional Connections - because Mount Union is where Exceptional begins. Register today.
