Alumni of the Sanford School of Public Policy are smart, pragmatic, and ethical citizens and leaders who live and work in every corner of the globe. These alumni, empowered through academic training and real-world experience, are motivated to build a better world by serving the public and guiding the private and non-profit sectors that shape government decisions.

Our alumni support the school with their time, resources, and advocacy.  Sanford's partnership with alumni plays a key role in the school's ability to connect across disciplines and around the world. Sanford alumni engage in the school by contributing to policy research, speaking to classes on their experience into the policy sector, recruiting and mentoring students, identifying and creating internships, and inviting other people to become engaged in the school. To talk about ways you can be involved, contact Robert Wright, Associate Dean, Development & Alumni Relations.
