The Politics Department is proud of our graduates, who have gone on to pursue meaningful and successful careers in government, public service, law, advocacy, communications, intelligence, and many other fields.  

In turn, our alumni share their experiences and insights in the classroom and provide career advice to majors. They also support a variety of programs, including speaker series, student scholarships, and research activities. Thanks to them, the Department continues to provide an enriching educational experience and valuable professional training to hundreds of students every year.

There are many ways that alumni can contribute to the Department’s educational mission. They can make a gift directly to the Department’s Annual Fund or through University Advancement, provide career guidance to our students, or join the Alumni Association.  Alumni are also encouraged to reach out to our faculty and staff directly to learn about other ways to participate in the Politics community.
