Why integrate with Graduway?

Integrating with Graduway allows you to promote your mentor network as an integral layer of support, perspective, and advice to your student population. This supports student success in many ways, by:

  1. providing them with an easily accessible network throughout their entire college career

  2. enabling easy access to a new range of perspectives, advice, and insight into various industries and careers

  3. and providing an additional layer of personal support to answer questions and dispel any concerns a student may have, outside of advising sessions

By showcasing mentor profiles within your career communities, you can help inspire students and encourage them to explore various career possibilities. Often times, we find that students overlook these resources if they're hard to find or inaccessible. By centralizing your mentor network in one place alongside your other career resources, we make it easy for your students to connect with mentors and ask specific questions about jobs they want to pursue, employers they like the look of, or industries they're interested in. 

Here's how it works 

The Graduway integration is easy to set up, and requires no maintenance to keep running! Through an API integration, we import your entire Alumni base into your uConnect dashboard. While we're importing your network, we can pre-tag any of your mentors to the relevant community in uConnect, based on the tags they have in Graduway! We'll walk through this process with you to make sure everything's set up correctly. 

At this time, we can also set up mentors being imported within specific industries of your choice to 'auto-publish' to the front end. This means, if you know you want to promote all your Healthcare mentors, we can have them automatically publish for you! If you want to sort through and only publish some of your Technology mentors, we can have those mentors fall into a 'pending' bucket for you. It's completely up to you, and we'll work with you to ensure we have the right set up for your institution.
