Professional Communities
More and more frequently, internship and job opportunities are discovered by connections. Longwood's Professional Communities segment the Longwood family into groups by career role and interest in order to serve as a catalyst for these connections. 
 
By joining a professional community, students and alumni not only become a part of a network of like-minded individuals, but they also gain exclusive access to professional development opportunities, digital and regional events, and other resources.
