“Shad gave me the initial inkling that I can form a community of people like me and thrive, and since then the things I’ve done have been all about finding and working with the others. If you spend your life finding the others, and letting them find you, all of the things you want to happen can happen.”

Richard Harris, CEO & Founder, Intent Media Inc., Shad 1987

The Shad Network team regularly connects with Shads from all program years and all program campuses. They look for updates on Shad accomplishments and career paths, businesses started and sold (!), university selections, scholarships, awards and most importantly, how Shads are changing the world. 


Shad provides opportunities to connect and engage in formal and informal ways through receptions, meet ups and events, and opportunities to participate in panels, roundtables and speaker events.
