Introducing the NESOP Alumni Portal

portalpicNESOP proudly announces the launch of our new Alumni Portal. Alumni can access the portal through the NESOP website under the Alumni menu navigation item from the home page, or, simply go here.

The alumni portal is an easy way to access job leads at any time, update your personal information and stay connected with fellow alumni and 2nd year students.  Alums are encouraged to take a few minutes to set up/request an account, your account request will then be submitted for approval. Once approved, you will receive a confirmation e-mail and will be ready to log-in and enjoy all the new features of the portal!

Things to Note:

Job Leads: As of  July 11th, job leads will no longer be emailed out to alumni database, all job leads will now be accessible through the portal and are available 24/7. They are posted in real time, so check back as often as you like.

Calls for Entry will also be posted and accessible via the portal. If you have a Call for Entry that you want to post to the portal for your fellow alums and current NESOP students, there are options for you to do so.

2nd Year Students: Your access to the portal is limited until you graduate. As a student, you will have access to job leads and Calls for Entry only. When you graduate, you will have access to the full Alumni Portal.

Alumni Profile: Karen Sparacio, 98

Founding Director of Project Have Hope, 1998 NESOP alum Karen Sparacio was recently featured in Be A Social Entrepreneur for her work with women in the Acholi Quarter of Uganda. By facilitating the sale of their beautiful, handmade paper bead jewelry, these women are able to earn money to feed their families, send their children to school, and look forward to a richer future.

“After a 10-year career in photojournalism, I’ve taken a break from daily assignment work to start a non-profit in Uganda and focus on an in-depth documentary project photographing in Uganda’s Acholi Quarter. As a photojournalist, my role was to be a passive observer, documenting life. As the founder of Project Have Hope, I have become an active participant in creating change. Project Have Hope seeks to empower a group of Acholi women to take charge of their future by providing them with the education and means to create sustainable economic solutions.”
