The Humphrey Alumni News + Views is about and for alumni. We encourage alumni to contribute their ideas and views to make it interesting to the entire Humphrey alumni community. Have an idea or a story to share? Want to let us know what interesting things a fellow alumnus is up to? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
Alumni "One-to-One"s are articles written by alumni, about alumni. They are the most popular elements of each e-newsletter. Everyone has a different story to tell, intriguing professional or volunteer work. If you have a story to tell, let us know! Email email@example.com if you're interested in helping!
