  • To protect the privacy of our undergraduate and graduate students, their profiles are not viewable in IrishCompass until they have communicated to alumni over the platform (e.g., sent a message, requested a meeting). Once a student has initiated contact via IrishCompass, their profile becomes visible only to those alumni the student has contacted. Students are not searchable in IrishCompass, and students don’t contact other students in IrishCompass.
