Master of Science in Social Policy Alumni Association (MSSPAA)

As SP2 celebrates 10 years of the Master of Science in Social Policy (MSSP) program, the MSSP program is excited to announce the formation of the MSSP Alumni Association. A committee of alumni and  students currently are working diligently to create and launch this initiative. The mission of the MSSPAA will be to nurture a sense of community through educational and social events, volunteer opportunities, and other means of alumni engagement. All MSSP graduates are considered members of the MSSPAA. MSSPAA leadership will assist with the logistics and operations of the group. If you have any questions, ideas, or wish to serve as a volunteer, please contact:
