Time Moves Quickly

For 25 years, the Alumni Career Center has provided alumni with the best of connections and resources.

Of course, much has changed since the Alumni Career Center opened 25 years ago. And those changes can be summarized in one word: technology.

More and more, technology is providing the means for UI alumni to communicate and connect with companies and one another. Technology has also become an increasingly productive way for the ACC to share an ever-expanding array of available information and resources.
