Alumni Professionals


The BYU-Idaho Alumni Professionals group mentors and supports current students and builds professional connections with fellow alumni. They do this by stimulating internship opportunities for students as well as hiring, promoting, and developing students and fellow alumni.


This group is comprised of alumni professionals who are serious about networking and who have experienced success in their professional careers. This group includes both graduates and those who attended BYU-Idaho but did not complete their degree.


Interactions for this group take place on the LinkedIn Private Group Page. There are no live meetings for this group; however, those who wish to be involved with the University’s Alumni Advisory Council may be invited to campus periodically.


Participation in this group will lead to meaningful connections with students and fellow alumni professionals. This will help you advance your network, increase your connections, and improve your career. Mentoring students within the group is also a rewarding service experience and meaningful way to give back to the university.
