Alumni Relations

Alumni relations services for the Supply Chain and Information Systems Department at Penn State

Penn State has one of the strongest and most active alumni bases in the country and there are a number of ways supply chain alumni can give back to Smeal and the department.

Hire SC&IS Students

The Supply Chain and Information Systems Department is using the Nittany Lion Careers site to post open full-time employment positions within your company for current undergraduate seniors and fellow alumni.

Present to Student Organizations

Partner with our student organizations to host an event on campus. Sample event topics include instructional workshops (i.e. How To Use Excel in the Workplace), mock interviews & resume reviews, planning for the future, and more!

Mentor Current Students

Volunteer your time to help guide a current student through the ins-and-outs of their college to career transition through the Smeal Mentoring Program.

Video Profiles: Smeal Women in Supply Chain

The Penn State Smeal College of Business partnered with Deloitte in fall 2017 in an initiative to increase the number of women in supply chain fields across the nation.
