Alumni Council News, November 2021

We have had a busy fall on the Rainier Scholars Alumni Council!

From community-building in Council meetings and strategic planning with Executive Director Rafael del Castillo, to learning from First Gen Cohorts about early career support for first generation and/or BIPOC folks, we’ve been working hard to support alumni. Check out our new Alumni Mentorship Program and considering participating.

Upcoming events:Be sure to SAVE the DATE for Monday, December 27 for our annual Rainier Scholars Alumni End of Year Celebration. We’re sorting out the details of the venue, but will send the invite soon for the in-person event!

Are you receiving emails from the Alumni Council? If not, please let us know at  to stay up to date with your fellow alumni.

We hope to see you soon!
