My name is Pedro Branco and I am the Alumni Relations and Community Engagement Coordinator at USG. I graduated from UMBC at USG in 2017 and am currently enrolled in the UMBC Industrial Organizational Psychology Graduate program. A few months prior to graduating from UMBC at USG, I was wondering what my next step in life would be. Where would I work? How will I be able to sustain myself financially? How was I supposed to succeed in my post-academic career?
As the Alumni Relations and Community Engagement Coordinator, I am able to alleviate some of the stress that comes with life-after-graduation. I have the ability to collaborate with our nine university partners to provide resources and support to alumni as they navigate their professional lives and aspirations.
So…What is an Alumni Ambassador at USG?
Having attended your program on the USG campus, I understand that you had a unique college experience. Through excitement of recent alumni eager to stay connected both to their alma mater and to the campus they’ve come to know and love, the Alumni Ambassadors at USG was born. It has become our goal to keep alumni of our nine partner universities engaged through regional alumni events, professional development initiatives and to broaden your professional network through various networking opportunities.
