CSM International Alumni Speaker Series

Coming to CSM for the first time in Spring 2021—the International Alumni Speaker Series provides a platform for CSM International graduates to motivate and inspire students from a program of study that had a significant impact on shaping their lives. Utilizing the guided pathways model, the series also serves the purpose for current and prospective CSM students from various career communities to engage in virtual discussions. By attending the series, we hope you will be inspired to find your own career path and ways to enrich your professional journey.

Dear CSM International Alumni,

The International Education Program at the College of San Mateo would like to invite you to share your experiences with our current and prospective students in our upcoming Alumni Speaker Series.

This past fall, we were honored to host our first International Alumni Panel. The event was the culmination of a year’s worth of collaboration between a group of alumni and our staff and faculty, who all came together to celebrate the history and stories from time spent at the College of San Mateo. This event would not have been possible without the passion and dedication of our alumni, who reached out to us to give back to our community with the gift of their time and valuable life lessons. Alumni from the 1960’s and 1970’s gave our community a glimpse of their diverse backgrounds and the challenges they faced while at CSM and beyond. Now we would love to hear from you.

Spring 2021 will be the beginning of what we hope to be an ongoing speaker series, in which our alumni participate by sharing their unique experiences with our current and prospective students. We want to hear about your challenges, what you’ve learned, and what life has brought to you after CSM. This invitation is open to all our alumni, from recent graduates to seasoned professionals.
