Opportunities to Connect with Alumni of Cultural Vistas' Programs

As some of you might have heard already, Cultural Vistas is developing its own alumni relations, and would like to invite the Bosch alumni to engage with other students and professionals who have participated in international exchanges. Richard Bobo is the new Alumni Relations Officer, and he will be contacting you with a number of opportunities for you to engage: by participating as speakers at panel discussions, inviting you to mentor younger alumni or inviting you to events in your hometown. Feel free to reach out to or Richard directly with any questions.
