Life-Long Learning

USC Annenberg is proud to offer alumni opportunities for life-long learning and professional development. With the communication and journalism industries quickly and almost constantly changing, USC Annenberg is hosting programs to support our alumni to stay relevant within these hyper-competitive industries.  Here are some opportunities to learn:

Annenberg Digital Lounge

The Digital Lounge is a creative makerspace where members of the Annenberg community can learn to experiment with new digital tools. Our DL team offers a collection of video and step-by-step tutorials on graphic design, video and motion, photography, web design, and web tools at annenbergdl.org

Alumni-2-Alumni Mentoring Program

At the local level, this program provides a mentoring resource that will allow young/recent alumni (graduated 10 years or less) and seasoned alumni (graduated 11 years or more) to connect, share and learn. By incorporating the tool of reverse mentoring, the Alumni-2-Alumni mentoring program provides both the mentee and mentor with the ability to learn from each other in a unique, comfortable and casual way. It is an opportunity to empower emerging established leaders from our alumni community. All participants commit to meeting once a month in person, by phone or Skype for four months.

  • Duration: 4-month commitment
    • Participants: 10 – 12 mentee/mentor pairs per region
    • Program Duration: February to May
    • Applications open January 2018
  • Open to alumni in the following regions for Spring 2018:
    • Orange County
    • San Francisco
    • New York

Applications for each region will be available here in January 2018.
