We believe that colleges, universities, and independent schools need strong communities to help students and alumni succeed. Switchboard helps schools create responsive, caring networks where members of their community can find and share transformative opportunities.
The internet brought us together so we could make the internet a better place.
Switchboard was founded by Mara Zepeda and Sean Lerner. They met over Twitter in 2012 and built the first Switchboard for their alma mater, Reed College. They wanted to create an intuitive ad-free platform that prioritized building community. You can read the entire story here.
