Alumni Connections

As spring begins, it is a great time for renewed energy with your classmates, faculty and staff. We at the University of Maryland School of Public Health, and your development team, are excited to continue our mission to promote and protect the health and well-being of the diverse communities throughout Maryland, the nation and the world. Because of support, our 2,500 undergraduate and graduate students are able to gain experience through interdisciplinary education, research, and practice to become tomorrow's public health leaders. We are very thankful for all your gifts and want to give back to you as well!

As an alumni, you already are making a difference in the world. We now invite you to become more engaged in the School’s present and future opportunities. This year, the development team is starting an outreach initiative to update contact information with our alumni and see how you’d like to become more involved, whether through volunteering at events, hosting students, being a mentor, or other ways to help the SPH community. The SPH Alumni Association is also looking for leaders to fill their officer positions.

First, consider completing our quick survey:  

In addition, you may be contacted by one of the development team members who have begun reaching out to alumni: Assistant Dean Elly Brtva, Development Coordinator Alesha Garvin, or Graduate Assistant Callie Koesters.

We would love to hear an update on your career track, how you can help SPH, or even how we can help you. We are working to strengthen your experience beyond your time at the university, so please reach out.

The School of Public Health is always interested in advice and input that alumni, family, friends, and community members are willing to share. We are looking forward to getting in touch with you, and for a healthy 2016!
