Alumni & parent relations moderates a community platform called Switchboard, which serves as a closed community space for faculty, staff, parents, students, and alumni to ask for what they need and offer what they have. Craig Swinyard, director, encouraged current Switchboard users to lean in to the power of connection. In these times of uncertainty, now more than ever, members of the UP community are here to support you. If you need help – or can offer help to your fellow Pilots – please reach out to your community here.
The Office of Alumni Relations has officially launched UP Switchboard, a new community building social network for members of the UP community. Switchboard will give students, alumni, faculty, and staff a place to connect online about everything for career advice to travel tips. It is designed to work like a combination of LinkedIn and Craigslist, where community members can ask for what they need and offer what they have.
