It means a lot to our alumni when faculty members invite them back to campus. PAW is the perfect opportunity to recognize and celebrate the success of your former students. Host a guest speaker in your class to motivate and inspire current students and encourage them to network within their field. PAW is a great way to help your students cultivate positive and meaningful relationships, bolstering their long-term success.

Faculty are encouraged to share the Panther Alumni Week Class Speaker Registration link with their alumni or register on behalf of the visiting alumnus.

Inviting successful alumni to speak to my classes has proved beneficial to our students, who are inspired and motivated by these role models in their future professions. Even though it requires some effort in identifying and selecting excellent graduates, it is well worth the time. I will continue this tradition.

Inviting Alumni to Participate

Contact the alumni you intend to host in your classroom directly. After confirming your guest speaker, submit their information and the class information online using the submission form below.

Work with your guest speaker to choose an ideal presentation style for your classroom. Set aside at least 20 minutes for a presentation, question and answer session, round table discussion or any other format you deem appropriate.

Remind your guest speaker to register online. You can also register on their behalf.

We look forward to another successful Panther Alumni Week for our students, alumni and faculty. Thank you for your participation.

If you have any questions or need help submitting information, e-mail us at arokaw@fiu.edu or contact your PAW College Liaison with PAW in the subject line.
