RISD Network

Give — or get — a career boost!

The RISD Network connects RISD students and alumni for career advice and networking.  All alumni are invited to serve as mentors, but may also seek support through the program. 

Mentoring RISD students and other alumni is an opportunity to give back to the RISD community, share expertise and enhance coaching skills. Alumni have valuable professional experience and a deep understanding of RISD, which position them to offer impactful career guidance. 

Mentors control how much time they can invest and the number of people they would like to help. The RISD Network also offers a directory of alumni and students enrolled in the program.
