AiR Event

Social Sciences alumni are thought leaders not only in research and higher education but also across a wide range of organizations, industries, and interests. Their impressively varied pursuits and experiences offer broad frameworks and models for current graduate students considering their own career aspirations. Through this exciting Alumni-in-Residence (AiR) initiative, accomplished alumni will engage with the Division’s programs and students in myriad ways, including 1:1 conversations, engagements with departments and degree programs, group events, and other programming.
