Opportunities to learn, connect, and exercise leadership do not end with the active fellowship. Through the Wexner Professional Leadership Programs Alumni Network, alumni of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program and Wexner Field Fellowship (as well as eventual alumni of the new fellowship for emerging leaders) are invited and encouraged to participate in, and contribute to, our alumni network and community.
Alumni are invited to join a Community of Practice (CoP), a small peer-facilitated group that will meet regularly via Zoom.
More information coming soon!
Through our Caring Communities initiative, alumni are invited to join with others who are experiencing similar life challenges and are looking for thought partners and peer support.
More information is coming soon about current Caring Communities, as well as details on how to get a new Caring Community started.
The WGF/DS and WFF Mentoring Program will leverage the deep and diverse talent that has been nurtured by 30+ years of the Fellowship Programs. The program will provide a framework for continuing support and guidance of Wexner alumni, bolstered by content-rich, personalized learning.
Through participation in this program, mentor volunteers will build coaching and supervisory skills that will help them lead more effectively in their professional and communal lives. Mentees will drive the relationship by working with their mentor to create mutually agreed-upon goals and expectations and will hold one another accountable to the highest level of informed committed participation.
Please send all questions to Or Mars, Vice President at email@example.com

We are proud to have many published authors and artists in our Professional Leadership Programs Alumni Network. In 2015, in honor of The Wexner Foundation’s 30th anniversary, a list of published works by alumni across all of our programs was complied. As we look to update and expand the list, please share your published books, films, podcasts, or albums here.
