The Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) mentor network is comprised of DMU alumni and current students. DMU Alumni volunteer their time to share information and knowledge with current DMU students about their education, career choices, and transitioning to life after DMU. DMU Students have the opportunity to connect with DMU alumni to gain knowledge and ask questions about their future career.

Once your application is processed, you can access the ASK Directory through DMU Connect and receive invitations to participate in ASK events held on campus or via video conference during the year.
