Development & Alumni Relations

Development and alumni relations at the School of Public Health go hand in hand in building community; creating opportunities to connect alumni, faculty, and students; funding student education; and forging a sustainable future for the school.

Together, development and alumni relations make up our school’s Advancement team.

As a global leader in public health, our school tackles the world’s most complex, emerging, and intractable public health challenges and SPH advancement works to support the school and its students, research, and programs. The school’s most ambitious effort toward that goal is its $40 million capital campaign that will be launched in April 2018.
