After Colgate and Alumni Life

The success of Colgate students is a responsibility shared by our entire community.

For more than 200 years, the University’s rich liberal arts curriculum and commitment to academic rigor have served as a catalyst to the career successes of Colgate graduates. 

As we move boldly into our third century, we endeavor to strengthen these foundational elements. We seek to cultivate an environment that encourages students’ self discovery and development by better integrating career and academic exploration. We also aim to increase connections between current students and an expanding, passionate, and influential Colgate community.

In doing so, we will increase students’ access to opportunities that will allow them to build the core skills and gain the necessary experience and competencies that best prepare them for a rapidly-evolving 21st-century workplace.
