A powerful network, a shared vision

Whether you're closing achievement gaps, improving water quality, reinvigorating struggling communities, or streamlining government services, there's a place for you here.

Ford School alumni address an amazing variety of policy issues all around the world. They are diverse in their heritage, in their viewpoints, and in their passions. But Ford School alumni share this—a dedication to making a difference in our world.

And they are deeply engaged and an integral part of the Ford School community.

Our alumni bring it all—their vision, passion, and knowledge—to the next generation of policy leaders by joining panel discussions, sharing professional achievements, providing career advice, conducting mock interviews, critiquing student resumes, hosting interns, hiring graduates, and more.

And we encourage alumni to continue their own professional development and learning through networking with each other, taking part in Ford School events, like PolicyTalks that "take them back to the classroom," and workshops and services offered by the U-M Alumni Association.
