Get Involved at The Chicago School
Alumni and friends can contribute to the success of The Chicago School by volunteering their time and talents. There are many ways for alumni and friends to give back. Some departments and programs that would benefit from alumni volunteers include:
Alumni Referral Network
The goal of the ARN is to identify alumni who are willing to offer
free mental health services for our students. By collaborating with The
Chicago School, you can contribute to students' personal development.
For more information, read the FAQs
or visit the Health and Wellness website
Students can benefit from speaking with an alumnus/a regarding your job, your field, or your career path. Alumni are invited to sit on career panels to discuss job search strategies, opening your own practice, alternative careers, managing work/life balance as well as other insightful topics.
Is your place of work interested in becoming one of The Chicago School's Community Partners? Community Partners offer assistantships, community-based research and service learning experiences for current TCSPP students. Additionally, alumni can volunteer for one day service projects with faculty, staff and students.
Host Committee for Alumni Events
The Alumni Relations Office plans a variety of events for alumni
throughout the year. By acting as a part of a host committee, alumni can
assist the office with reach out to fellow classmates and colleagues.
The Chicago School is excited to launch the LINK Alumni Mentoring
Program in Fall 2011. By serving as a mentor, alumni can expand students' knowledge
beyond the classroom. This is an opportunity for alumni to provide
students with insight and offer them guidance and support. This program is flexible, does not require a large time commitment, and utilizes a LinkedIn group. To learn more and sign up, click here
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology's Professor-For-A-Day Program brings clinicians, professionals, and business leaders into the classroom to provide students and faculty with the most current perspectives on the field of psychology, opportunities and challenges facing the mental health practitioner, and new and unique ways that psychology is impacting people, communities and businesses. This program is currently available at the Los Angeles, Westwood and Irvine Campuses.
The Chicago School is in need of alumni representatives interested in attending prospective student events throughout the country. Alumni will provide insight on their experiences as a student at The Chicago School, as well as their path after graduate school.
Research and Survey Participants
Do you remember how hard it was to collect data for your research projects or find subjects for assessment reports? Alumni can assist Chicago School students with research projects by participating as research and testing subjects. Alumni who express interest in serving in this capacity will be contacted by email with additional details when opportunities arise.
Are you interested in supervising a TCSPP practicum/internship student at your workplace? Site supervisors collaborate with the Applied Professional Practice department which coordinates field placement.
Student groups are always interested in having alumni speak to their respective groups on various topics relating to their organization or the field of psychology.
