On Dec. 3, 2020, the evening before the final day of Fall semester classes, Drew students took a study break to meet five impressive alums committed to civic engagement and to making our world a better place. Our Launch Social Impact Career Community hosted the event, along with Prof. Amy Koritz from the Center for Civic Engagement. Our alums shared their compelling stories that led them on the path to interesting and diverse careers and to a life of service to their communities and our shared world. During the event, they provided insights into how their Drew experiences informed their career paths and ongoing commitment to community; the role mentors played for them at Drew and along their way; the social issues they are most passionate about and the work they do to address them; and advice to help our students make the most of their years at Drew so they are able to find purpose and meaning in their lives and be prepared to serve the greater good in their future. They spoke eloquently about the need for compassion, empathy, asking questions and following their passions. The students left with an abundance of useful information and some of their first contacts in their professional network.
