A Gathering of Human Services Alumni, Professors & Students

Reconnect with Human Services Professors and Alumni
Update us on what you’re up to – even if you’re not in the area!


The Human Services Alumni Networking Event is an opportunity to make both educational and professional connections. This event is an opportunity for graduating seniors, current students, and Human Services Alum to form connections and to hear about the vast array of graduate programs and career paths that our graduates have chosen. It is also a way for Human Services Alum to reconnect with old friends. Bring your resume! This committee will publish a resource guide with contact information for many Human Services Alumni over the past years.


The first Annual Alumni Networking Event was held at Northeastern University’s Alumni Center in April 2011. Former Human Service majors and current students engaged in lively discussion about Human Service Careers, graduate study and job hunting strategies.

A Panel of four Alumni shared their varied career history. A “networking mixer,” comprised of special interest tables, followed the panel discussions. Some of the topics offered by Alumni currently employed in those fields were: Health and Wellness, Direct Service, and Social Justice. In advance of the event, a survey was mailed to over 200 alumni. The committee compiled professional profiles of Alumni that were distributed to each guest.
