  • Alumni of the Pompea College of Business who graduated in the past ten years - we invite you to be a part of the PCOB Career Mentoring Program. This new initiative matches UNH business students with alumni mentors like you, who have been in their shoes and know first-hand what it’s like to transition from UNH to the professional world. Being a mentor is more important now than ever. You’d be able to provide a space for UNH students to discuss their career interests and experiences at UNH and beyond. We strongly encourage you to become a mentor and make a difference in the success of a UNH student.


    Here’s how Mentor Collective at UNH works:

    Time Commitment:
    The mentorship program ends in August 2022, but you’re more than welcome to stay connected with your mentee(s) after the program formally ends. We recommend that you connect with your mentee(s) at least once a month.

    Matching Process:
    Students complete a survey about themselves and their backgrounds. Mentor Collective matches students and mentors based on what the student says is most important to them.

    Mentees begin signing up in January:
    Once you are matched with a mentee, you will both decide how you want to connect, which can happen via email, phone, video chat, text, or in-person.

    Mentor Collective will email you with more information—please review it, and do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have. If you don’t wish to participate in the program this year please email us and we’ll remove you from future messaging. You can also contact Mentor Collective directly at Thanks for your continued support of UNH students!

  • Designed to connect directly with prospective students, there are a variety of opportunities that allow alumni to enhance the efforts of the University’s admissions programs. For more information about how you can help, email us at

The BUILD experience provides students with a supportive and caring learning environment through participation in interactive activities, mentorship, and early connection to curricular and co-curricular resources to meet their intellectual, social, emotional, and cultural needs.

  • We welcome our alumni to speak to our students and share their career experiences and advice. One of the best ways we can teach our students is by learning directly from our very own knowledgeable and experienced alumni. To learn more, email us at

Alumni Association Board of Directors

About the Board of Directors

All new graduates of the University of New Haven automatically become members of the Alumni Association. The Alumni Association is governed by the Alumni Board of Directors - volunteers who serve the University, its alumni and current students. The Board of Directors consists of up to 35 members. Meetings are held monthly and are open to members of the Alumni Association. Nominees are sought annually in the spring to fill vacancies on the Board of Directors. All alumni are invited to participate in nominating new members to the Board. The Nominating Committee of the Board reviews proposed candidates and recommends a slate to the Board of Directors for approval. The slate must then be approved by the voting majority of the Alumni Association. Those elected serve a three-year term beginning July 1. Upon completion of the first term, Board members can be re-elected to serve a second three-year term.

Mission of the Alumni Association

The purpose of The Association shall be to nourish the growth and enhance the reputation of the University, to maintain a mutually beneficial relationship between the University community and alumni, to oversee all alumni programs and activities, to foster loyalty and financial support for the University, to represent alumni interest before the University administration and Board of Governors, and to provide services to alumni.
