For those that have used our "Briton Network" platform in partnership with Wisr. We would like to extend our gratitude for your willingness to connect with students and alumni. While not all that have volunteered have completed connections, many students and alumni have benefited greatly from the opportunity to network and obtain career-related knowledge.
In the coming months, we will have some exciting new opportunities for 1:1 peer student success and alumni/student career mentoring. This aligns with good industry practices in effective mentoring, and we know the sustained support provided to students through this and other wraparound wellness initiatives will positively impact student retention and career success after graduation.
To best facilitate meaningful connections between alumni and students, we are evaluating our existing and needed tools, and have decided to discontinue the Wisr (Briton Network) platform, effective Friday, April 9. We are also developing a platform that will take the place of Wisr and have all of the needed functionality to promote these meaningful connections that have been made using the existing system.
We will share more details in the coming months about opportunities for professional networking and mentoring. In the meantime, we encourage you to join Briton Connections on LinkedIn. Here you will find it easy to reach out to thousands of fellow Brits waiting to network and provide assistance.
Thank you to our alumni who have offered support and connections to our students and contributed to the success of our fellow Britons. We look forward to continued success.
