Alumni Committee

The HSA Alumni Committee serves at the request of the Program faculty, and provides leadership to the Program on the identification and implementation of strategies to communicate and link more closely with HSA graduates. In addition, the Alumni Committee serves as a source of valuable input to the Program on curriculum and other Program issues. The committee is currently identifying ways for the Program to achieve greater engagement with alumni. Contact any of the members of the Alumni Committee or Program faculty if you have ideas to share on engagement and communication.
