YED Newsletter | September 2020

 
   
 
 
 

CEE students will be moving back on campus this month, making the transition from 100% remote learning to a combination of in-person and remote learning. Given the economic challenges that many students and their families have faced amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many students may have a harder time obtaining funds for their tuition, books, room and board than in previous years.

Gifts to the YED Scholarship fund are being accepted in the form of both one-time and recurring payments (for example, a $60 gift to the fund could be made by making a single payment in that amount up front or by making payments of $5/month over a period of one year).

To find out more about the impact of the YED Scholarship fund can be found at cee.illinois.edu/YED.

 
   
 
 
 

The Networking Committee is excited to invite you to our first Virtual Networking Happy Hour on Wednesday, September 30. This Happy Hour is open to all recent graduates and young alumni, and will focus on the challenges we have all faced during the pandemic. We hope to share ideas on things that have worked and difficulties we have all faced as young alumni. We'd also love to hear about challenges that recent graduates have faced starting a new job or navigating the job market during these unprecedented times.

Please save the date and keep an eye out for an upcoming invite with more details!

 

 

 
   
 
 
 

Based on the results of our recent survey, the Career Development committee is creating a wiki to compile resources related to professional development, licensure, and higher education for students and young alumni.

Got a specific topic you want to know more about? Licensure requirements? Grad school program types? Alumni info that could help your professional development? Feel free to submit your suggestions here! (https://forms.gle/j2r1mwbaFwh86qny7)

We'll be releasing the wiki next month, so stay tuned!

 

 
   
 
 
 

Program kicked off earlier this month with a stellar line up of the mentors that are committed to guide a group of brilliant mentees in support of their professional and personal growth. As we start our program, we plan to follow-up with the pairings to report on the success of the mentorship relationship and to document the most valuable lessons from this initiative. As we celebrate this program, we encourage you to learn about the benefits from having a mentor and being a mentee.
