Alumni Connections

Our alumni go on to hold positions of leadership in government, industry and nonprofits throughout the world. With each passing year the success and impact of your fellow alumni are increasing the value of your degree and the strength of your network. We welcomed our 28th class into our dynamic global community in 2016.

Nominate Outstanding GPS Alumnus or Alumna by March 24

GPS seeks to recognize alumni for success in their careers and contributions to society. Each year, through nominations from alumni, faculty and staff, one person is recognized by their peers as the School's "outstanding" alumnus or alumna. This honor is given to those who exemplify the positive contributions alumni make through their careers, volunteer work and community involvement. The award will officially be presented on Saturday, June 10 as part of the School's alumni weekend celebration. Meet last year’s winner Yiru Zhou ’93.
