How Alumni Can Help the Magner Center


To remain competitive, Brooklyn College students need to prepare for their career by completing one or more internships before they graduate. Students who lack financial resources need assistance in order to afford to take high-quality internships.

  • Internships Opportunities—Providing internships, ideally paid, is an especially helpful way of giving students the opportunity to remain competitive for top-level jobs. Internship opportunities can be e-mailed to (make sure to indicate you are BC alumnus).
  • Internship Stipends—Providing monetary gifts or stipends that enable students to take the internships they need is a great way to help. Without this support, many students would be unable to leave their part-time jobs to take needed internships.


Being a mentor can range from answering questions about a student’s upcoming interview to questions about your career path. Mentors from organizations such as Z100, Goldman Sachs, ESPN, New York City Department of Education, U.S. Department of State, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and FEGS have played an important role in impacting Brooklyn College students’ careers and lives. Alumni can join the Alumni & Student Professional Networking Group on LinkedIn or via e-mail to become engaged. For more information, review our frequently asked questions and Alumni Mentor Policy.
