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.
Due to COVID-19, SIPA’s Office of Career Services will offer virtual career programs to alumni and students during the fall 2020 semester.
