Our alumni continue to tackle issues of diversity, power, and privilege in their careers and to advocate for disadvantaged and disenfranchised populations. Our alumni are able to utilize the classes and conversations they had here at SP2 in order to counteract discrimination and oppression in their daily work and communities. Many of our alumni hold leadership positions related to diversity and inclusion in various organizations.

Our alumni remain connected to SP2, serving on advisory committees, networking with other alumni, and attending SP2-sponsored events, both on-campus and throughout the United States and the world. Additionally, alumni support SP2’s diverse recruitment efforts by referring students of all different backgrounds to each of our five degree programs.
