The mission of the Alumni Board of Directors is to serve students and graduates of SPIA and promote and support the School’s programs and activities in order to cultivate and encourage a continuing affiliation between and among graduates and the School. The Board is currently developing an alumni-student mentoring program and raising funds to support a study abroad scholarship and a stipend for an MPA student to participate in an unpaid internship. To learn more about this organization or to get involved, contact Board Chair Alex Bradford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ALUMNI BOARD OF DIRECTORS
One of the many ways our alumni can stay connected and give back to their alma mater is by serving as a mentor to a SPIA student. While the classroom is where learning begins, our students crave real world opportunities to test their knowledge and skills. If you work in a government agency, non-profit organization, or related corporate field and have interest in becoming a mentor, please contact Donna Brazzell at email@example.com.
