While the SIPA staff, faculty and students work and study remotely during this unprecedented global health crisis, we extend wishes of good health to members of our alumni community around the world.
Information about SIPA’s response to COVID-19 is available here. As always, you can stay in touch with news from SIPA on social media.
A special fund has been set up to assist SIPA students with unanticipated financial burdens at this time. To make a donation, visit the online giving site Columbians Care for Students and designate your gift to “SIPA Dean’s Initiatives Fund.”
SIPA alumni are part of a powerful global network of more than 22,000 alumni in over 160 countries. The Office of Alumni Affairs works in partnership with the SIPA Alumni Association to develop events and opportunities that connect SIPA alumni to each other and to the School to strengthen this unique global community.
Learn more about the ways you can connect with SIPA and the alumni community.
We look forward to hearing from you!
SIPA Alumni Association
The SIPA Alumni Association is made up of engaged alumni volunteers who work in partnership with SIPA on initiatives including the annual Alumni Day, Class Reunions, the Admissions Ambassadors program and career activities for students and alumni. The Alumni Association also advises SIPA on issues concerning alumni.
Alumni play a vital role in SIPA’s recruitment efforts by sharing their SIPA experience with prospective and admitted students as Admissions Ambassadors. Join us to share the value of your SIPA degree and professional experience with the next class of SIPA students. Volunteer opportunities vary during the recruitment cycle and include scheduled events in specific cities.
SIPA’s graduates are making an impact across the globe as leaders in government, private sector and non-governmental organizations. There are many ways SIPA alumni can get involved in supporting the professional development of SIPA students including speaking on a career panel, posting an internship or job, arranging for an employer information session, sponsoring a capstone project or attending an alumni-student networking reception.
Regional SIPA Communities
Join our effort to build regional SIPA communities around the world. Regional Alumni Ambassadors are a network of dedicated volunteers who serve as points of contact for SIPA and CAA alumni activities around the world.
Thank you to alumni and faculty who supported planning for this year’s Alumni Day and Class Reunion Dinner which was scheduled for April 25, 2020. We had a great team of Class Reunion Ambassadors this year leading outreach for the graduating classes of 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2019.
