The Alumni-in-Residence Program is part of the Division’s programming for doctoral and master’s students as they consider the broad portfolio of academic and professional opportunities they could pursue. Through networking and career explorations, this initiative builds connections between students and Social Sciences alumni across a wide range of organizations, industries, and interests.

The Alumni-in-Residence (AiR) program was developed to provide students, postdocs, and alumni an opportunity to connect. Our alumni in SSD are thought leaders in a variety of sectors including research and higher education, government, private industry, and self-employed. The alumni’s impressively varied pursuits and experiences offer broad frameworks and models for current graduate students considering their own career aspirations.
