The School of Public Affairs 2016-17 Alumni Advisory Council met in July to embrace the primary objectives of the Council, as outlined below. This years’ council is composed of thirteen alumni spanning MPA/MPP programs from the mid 80’s, 90’s through 2016 and PSPP undergraduates from the first graduating class, 2012 through 2015, and is coordinated by the SPA Career Programs Manager.
The SPA Alumni Advisory Council was formed in the summer of 2013 and members agreed that the primary objectives would be to 1) promote the vision and mission of the School of Public Affairs and the College of Public Programs by strengthening alumni engagement, 2) support the academic, career and professional goals of SPA students and alumni, 3) improve alumni-career connections throughout the public, nonprofit and community sectors and 4) cultivate and advance the SPA alumni brand - of service, leadership and a sense of community.
The 2016 – 2017 Council members decided that they will work as one group to participate and promote these goals. This year they will primarily engage with students, faculty and alumni involved in the ASU-ICMA Student Chapter, through a professional development speaker series, field trips and social events, as well as School sponsored public speaking and career management training, and serve as expert panelists and mentors for current students at the annual Handshake to Hire career event and Community and Public Service Career & Internship Fair, ICMA and ACMA-Next Gen and Women Leadership in Government events during the academic year. New activities to support the development of internship, mentorship, job shadowing and other work-learning opportunities for the next generation of public managers are also being considered.
