Alumni networking platform allows you to GCU Connect

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has unveiled a digital networking platform for graduates to allow interaction between thousands of alumni around the world.

GCU Connect, which has over 1,000 active users within its first week of launching, will give graduates access to a platform which integrates social networks and enables the user to find and reminisce with classmates, post jobs and career connections, hear about all the latest GCU news from around the world, and benefit from alumni offers such as venue hire discounts.

Users can sign up in less than two minutes by importing their LinkedIn or Facebook profile. GCU Connect can be added to smartphone or tablet homescreens, allowing fast and easy access to all the latest updates. Graduates who sign up before December 16 will automatically be entered into a prize draw for a £100 Amazon voucher.

John Taylor, Alumni Engagement Manager said: “We are always delighted to hear that so many of our graduates are keen to stay connected and actively engaged with the University after their graduation. What GCU Connect provides is an easy way to remain engaged wherever you are in the world. And the real beauty is you choose how you want to use the system – be it simply to remain connected with classmates and the GCU community, to get involved with activities at GCU around the world or to keep informed of benefits and ways in which GCU can support you and your company.”
