Founded in the fall of 2020, the UMD Global Doctoral and Postdoctoral Alumni Network (UMD-DOCNET) focuses on connecting UMD doctoral alumni, graduate students and postdocs across the globe with the hope of providing greater resources to support: (a) navigating a variety of (non-academic) careers, (b) elevating writing/communication, (c) improving inclusion and diversity, (d) mental health and (e) mentoring.  It is also a platform for sharing career resources and job/internship opportunities.
