Reconnecting with GSAS
Reconnecting with alums is one of Dean Cadge’s priorities for GSAS over the next few years. If you have a suggestion or recommendation for programming you would like to see, please reach out to Abigail Arnold. Please also feel free to submit an item to the GSAS Alum Newsletter to let us know your recent news.
We are celebrating the 70th anniversary of GSAS in 2023! As part of the celebration, we are sharing stories of GSAS history, holding celebrations for individual departments, and soliciting favorite memories and stories of GSAS couples.
Support Our Efforts to Increase Career Diversity
Graduate education has never been sought in so many venues as it is today. We are always seeking alums with interesting or unusual career paths to serve as models for our students. If you are interested in connecting with our current students to discuss your career path or serve as a mentor, please contact Marika McCann, Associate Director, Professional Development and Employer Outreach. You may also sign up to indicate your willingness to hear from current students.
