The Corporate Ambassador Program is an initiative designed to foster comradery among Rensselaer alumni and alumnae, and deepen their level of engagement with their alma mater. Corporate Ambassadors are active participants in Rensselaer events and programming, and committed to growing the Rensselaer community within the region and within their company.

As a Corporate Ambassador, you pledge to:

Stay Connected to Rensselaer

  • Attend at least two chapter virtual or in-person events or Rensselaer initiatives annually.
  • Keep up-to-date on Rensselaer news and events through social media, the monthly e-newsletter, and other Institute communication vehicles.

Champion Your Alma Mater in Your Workplace

  • Seek ways to grow strategic corporate partnerships with Rensselaer (i.e. research, internships/Arch experiences, co-op, full-time opportunities, curriculum development, student experience, professional education opportunities).
  • Help start or support a Rensselaer virtual or in-person event at your workplace.

Keep the Value of a Rensselaer Degree Strong

  • Serve as a Brand Ambassador, sharing the value of your Rensselaer degree and experience with current and future students.
  • Commit to support the ReCAP Challenge – with a gift of any amount – and participate in your company’s corporate match program if available.


Network with Fellow Alumni and Alumnae Leaders

  • Grow your network by connecting with Rensselaer alumni and alumnae leaders at regional events and Institute in-person and virtual events.
  • Provide career guidance or job leads to fellow alumni/ae.
  • Offer an insider’s perspective into your field or organization.

Leverage Campus Resources

  • Engage with Rensselaer faculty and students on areas of interest to your company.

If you are interested in connecting with alumni/ae at your company, staying informed on the latest research and activities at Rensselaer, and have more than 50 Rensselaer alumni/ae at your company, then consider establishing a corporate ambassador community.

The Office for Corporate Relations seeks to partner with alumni/ae leaders and Corporate Ambassadors to create an active alumni/ae community at your workplace. Engaging with other alumni/ae at your company to build a community might include:

  • Hosting at least two in-person or virtual events each year at your workplace, such as:
    • Alumni welcome reception for interns/Arch participants, new hires
    • Faculty presentation on new areas of research
    • Alumni panel discussion or chapter event
    • Industry or cross industry networking
  • Supporting a Specific Company Priority at Your Workplace, such as:
    • Talent acquisition (perhaps specific to a field or discipline)
    • Advancing diversity and inclusion
    • Sustainability
    • Building communication skills and increasing productivity across departments
  • Improving Ease of Access to Rensselaer Resources
    • Contribute corporate highlight information for the ReCAP (Rensselaer Corporate Ambassador Program) section of the monthly alumni newsletter including highlighting key initiatives, or resources you would like to promote to the alumni community
