alumni events

At SP2, we offer our alumni a slate of events that provide opportunities for networking, personal development, and professional enrichment.

These events allow SP2 graduates to interact with each other but also to get to know current students, faculty, and staff. We hope these events will create spaces for alumni to feel connected with SP2’s present and invested in the School’s future.

Some of our regular programming includes: 

SP2 Fridays

A chance for alumni to return to Caster for relaxed evening of food and refreshments with current students and faculty. Held throughout the semester.

SP2 Minute

This event allows SP2 graduates to share their expertise with the rest of the School’s community and engage in thought provoking discussions on a wide range of relevant topics. Held throughout the semester.

SP2 Speaker Series

The Speaker Series features leading scholars and activists from within the SP2 community and beyond in conversation with renowned social justice leader Ben Jealous. Held throughout the semester.
