No matter where you live or where you are in your career, Benedictine University makes it easier than ever for alumni like you to make a direct impact on the lives of current students. We've partnered with Wisr to bring you the Benedictine University Network, a mentoring and networking tool that makes it easy for caring BenU alumni to guide students through questions about their career paths, industries and graduate school choices. As a member, you will also have the benefit of connecting with fellow alumni.

Many of our alumni are also looking for ways to give back to their alma mater through volunteer opportunities. Money may be tight, but sharing a little of your time will go a long way!
