Why integrate with PeopleGrove?

Integrating with PeopleGrove enables you to promote your extensive mentor network within the context of career education and exploration. This supports student success in many ways:

  1. by broadening their network, 

  2. by opening them up to relatable perspectives and advice,

  3. and by providing an additional layer of support to answer student questions. 

By showcasing mentor profiles within your career communities, you can help to encourage students to connect with mentors who can inspire them to persist and reach their career goals. Your now easily accessible and visible network makes it easy for students to find alumni who have pursued careers in their communities of interest, and with whom your students can connect to learn from their experiences.

Here's how it works

Integrating with PeopleGrove is quick, and easy. The configuration works to pull in your alumni mentors from your PeopleGrove account via an API. The integration then filters them into the relevant communities on your uConnect platform, and automatically publishes them for your users to explore. 

What's even better? It requires zero maintenance to continue pulling in and publishing new mentors. 

If you know you always want to automatically publish your Technology industry mentors, no problem - we can do that! If you think you'll want to pre-approve the mentors coming in for your Business community rather than having them automatically publish to the front-end, no problem there either - we can do that too! 

Pick and choose the industries you'd like to have auto-approved, and we can easily activate that feature for any or all (or none!) of the communities you like.
