The free online community is exclusive to University of Kentucky alumni, students, parents and campus partners. It provides a directory and mentorship platform and is designed to empower connections across the globe through personal and professional networks.
Wildcat Network serves as a platform for:
- finding, reconnecting and engaging with fellow Wildcats;
- building a professional network;
- mentoring alumni and students;
- staying in the loop on virtual and in-person events; and
- employment opportunities.
Mentoring connections can be made between alumni or between alumni and students. Employment opportunities are pulled from Handshake, an online employment network, while the Big Blue Business Directory promotes UK-affiliated businesses and any sales or specials they are offering.
"We're excited that Wildcat Network will offer something to University of Kentucky students and alumni that has never been available before," said Jill Smith, associate vice president for alumni engagement and executive director of the UK Alumni Association. “It takes less than two minutes to sign up. We hope everyone will become part of this exclusive online Wildcat community that’s created to engage alumni and students,” said Smith.
