Every day, SPEA students enter the classroom eager to absorb methods, data, and theories while finding direction in their lives. They graduate from SPEA ready to make a difference, and want to give back to the School in meaningful ways. In consultation with our alumni, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations at SPEA has developed the new Alumni Leadership Network (ALN) through which graduates are able to use their talents, perspectives, and connections to benefit current students. More than 100 SPEA alumni are active ALN participants, but we want to get more alumni involved to serve our growing student and alumni populations.
Below you will find four main ways that we ask alumni to participate, but we are able to work with interested SPEA grads on other projects of interest as well. Below you will hear about the ways our alumni choose to engage, and some of their reasons for supporting the School.
To join the Alumni Leadership Network, contact Alison Polley, director of alumni relations and advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (812) 855-7781.
