“Our alumni, our students, and our team is app’d out. We chose Protopia because we need a simple and scalable tool to let our alumni give back without throwing another platform at them.”
Vice Chancellor for Alumni Relations
University of Pittsburgh
Pitt graduates are experts in research and innovation with key insights to create a valuable network with current students, the problem is how. An app wouldn’t cut it, because alumni and students are overwhelmed already by apps and platforms. Pitt was looking for a solution to connect students and alumni easily and effectively without having to download another app.
ASP Net Alumni was launched to cultivate meaningful, productive connections within the Pitt community. Ask Panthers matches the students’ questions with alumni that can give them the best answer without taking too much time.Everyone is encouraged to participate.
Alumni have found a useful and simple way to give back by mentoring, guiding, and giving advice about their professional field that have benefited thousands of students –most of them hesitant to ask without ASP Net Alumni.
“It’s a great way to give back. I got an email, saying ‘Do you want to help a student, maybe?,’ and it actually had all of her questions and information; it didn’t come directly from the student. Which was perfect.“
“I didn’t feel any pressure to respond to this request, rather just a great opportunity to give back to the university; and most importantly, to the students. To help them in making important decisions and to hopefully increase the bond they feel to the time they spend at the University of Pittsburgh.“
“The process was actually very simple. It was quick to the point, literally typing an email and hitting the send button. And all five to 10 minutes. process and dedication of my time… I think alumni actually welcome the questions and appreciate that students are concerned, it’s certainly not a burden of time.”
