Alumni Professions Panel Series

Don’t miss an opportunity to talk directly with Pitzer alumni about professions and potential career paths that may be of interest to you. The panels will be informal and very interactive so please don’t hesitate to be curious and ask questions. Alumni typically have great advice and insights to share about their professions and what it takes to be successful. They also know what it’s like to be a Pitzer student and how challenging the career planning process can be. Attending a panel is a great way to spend an hour on a Friday afternoon, so please join us!

Teach for American Information Session
Wendy Kopp proposed the idea for Teach For America in her Princeton University undergraduate thesis in 1989. In 1990, a charter corps of 500 committed recent college graduates joined Teach For America and began fueling the movement to eliminate educational inequity. Since then, nearly 33,000 participants have reached more than 3 million children nationwide during their two-year teaching commitments. They have sustained their commitment as alumni, working within education and across all sectors to help ensure that children growing up in low-income communities get an excellent education. To find out more visit a TFA representative at their info table outside of the McConnell Dining Hall.
