2016 Alumni Panel
Fall 2016 Alumni Panel
On September 14, 2016, we welcomed five MPP graduates for an Alumni Panel. We are so fortunate to have these and so many other alumni working in policy in the City of Chicago and around the country. It affords our students a behind-the-scenes look into a myriad of different professions, and helps them connect what they are learning in the classroom to what they will be doing after they graduate.
