“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” —Benjamin Franklin
Darden alumni have much to teach us. Though already accomplished leaders and scholars in advance of graduation from Darden, they continually emphasize their focus on lifelong learning and meaningful engagement with faculty, staff and thought leaders wherever they arise. Alumni call on us to build venues for knowledge and engagement. The following list of opportunities is representative of our ongoing effort to answer their call.

Alumni Speaker Fellows
The Alumni Speaker Fellows program was created to recognize alumni who have contributed their time and professional experience to Darden’s classroom through a newly designed elective course. Our objective for these alumni-centered electives is to engage a broad cross section of Darden alumni in the educational experience of our students.
Online faculty presentations provide specialized opportunities for alumni to learn. Discussions are targeted to the faculty member’s research and relate to a variety of business sectors and industries.
Other Online Opportunities
Darden’s YouTube Channel provides the opportunity to listen as business leaders, faculty and guests present their thoughts on a variety of topics, including ethics, the economy, entrepreneurship, sustainability and leadership.
Darden is on iTunesU within the University of Virginia section. Content includes video and podcasts of programs.
Social media provides many ways you can stay in touch: the DardenCommunity website, Darden LinkedIn with over 3,000 members, Darden’s official Facebook site and Darden's Twitter account.
