Together for Rochester

Banner for Meliora Weekend

Together for Rochester is a one-year campaign to make life better for the University of Rochester community and for the world.

It’s about everyone pitching in, staying connected, and helping our students and graduates find internships and jobs. It’s about promoting equity and access. And it’s about communicating how important our network of alumni, volunteers and friends is to our future.

At Warner, we are focused on equity and access initiatives and our focus is centered on our students and those we help through our Horizons program, our Center for Urban Education Success, our Center for Disability and Education program, and our scholarships. Learn more.

The Meliora Collective is an online platform for alumni, students, and the University of Rochester community that fosters professional exploration throughout the various stages of life. It provides one space for all to network, and participate in mentorship as a mentor or mentee, regardless of class year, background, industry, or school. Take advantage of this unique resource, offered specifically to benefit you and your professional needs. Every person brings different experiences to the platform, which over time, contributes to the resources available on The Collective.

Within The Collective, you can:

  • Search discussion topics and post your own professional questions to the entire community.
  • Join a group that has a common interest or pertains to your professional industry.
  • Tailor your search for a mentor, or simply network using filters like degree, areas of expertise, school, on-campus activities, and more!
