Speaking Opportunities

Throughout the year, alumni have multiple opportunities to return to campus and speak to current WCGS students. One in particular, the Alumni Career Talks (ACT) program, provides a unique forum where students can discuss education, career and lifestyle choices with alumni representing a wide variety of professional industries. The ACT program format includes dinner followed by a presentation featuring the alumnus/a speaker.

If you would like to serve as a future ACT speaker, please email shm2056@med.cornell.edu for more information.
