Common Ties continues to provide programming, events, and irreplaceable connections

The Common Ties Advisory Committee steers UCC’s Common Ties mentorship program to ensure it meets the needs of all constituents and continues to support the annual Common Ties events and programming. The current committee chair is Michael Carmichael ’97.

It’s been a busy year for Common Ties as we embarked on adding a new career path — entrepreneurship — which complements our already existing finance, legal and real estate events.  On June 6, we held the inaugural entrepreneurship networking event where Christian Lassonde ’93 discussed the risks, rewards, challenges and benefits of entrepreneurship through the lens of both a founder and venture capitalist. We’re anticipating hosting more events about emerging and growing fields as we look to future trends in the business world.

While we live in a time of unprecedented access to people and opportunities through online networks, Common Ties offers the irreplaceable connection that comes from a one-on-one interaction with someone who shares your values and can relate to your experiences. There are many ways to get involved:
