Shadow for Success

Are you interested in helping today’s Rider students to become tomorrow’s leaders? 

The School of Liberal Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce The Shadow Experience, a new credit-bearing course that partners students with successful Rider Alumni and community business leaders in a unique learning experience during the winter break and summer terms. We invite you to become a host for this worthwhile endeavor that will entail current students shadowing you at work for a total of twenty-five hours.

This experience will allow Rider students to develop:

  • a meaningful mentoring relationship, 
  • connect classroom curriculum to applied practice, 
  • explore career possibilities and 
  • observe the daily realities of the working environment.  

It will provide you an opportunity:

  • to become engaged in the education of today’s students and 
  • maintain your connection to the Rider community.

How can I become a host?
