LEAP Symposium 2017

The Lynk is Mount Holyoke's signature approach that connects curriculum to career by ensuring that each MHC student has the opportunity to explore their career interests, gain practical experience and begin to develop a professional network through an internship or research project.

Rather than follow a prescribed program, students shape their own Lynk experiences. Through a combination of rigorous coursework, enhanced advising, alumnae mentoring, professional development and experiential learning on and off campus, The Lynk equips students to navigate a lifetime of career opportunities and trajectories.

At The Lynk's core are intentional reflection and assessment, challenging students to connect high-impact experiences with career exploration throughout their time at Mount Holyoke. Graduates are prepared to apply intellectual flexibility and critical thinking in workplace and community settings.

By directing your gift to The Lynk & Career Preparedness, you are investing in:

  • guaranteed funding for one summer internship or research opportunity for every student
  • career development programming that engages 90 percent of the student body
  • the annual LEAP Symposium, where nearly 300 students present about internship and research experiences
  • industry and site visits through The Lynk on the Road and the Career Development Center.

Preparing Mount Holyoke students for lifelong success matters to us. What matters most to you?

All gifts to The Mount Holyoke Fund have a direct effect on every aspect of the Mount Holyoke experience and provide immediate support to the College’s most critical needs. You can choose to direct your gift to one of 11 different gift destinations, from scholarship aid to athletics to sustainability initiatives, ensuring that your gift supports what matters most to you.
