Other Ways to Give Back

Although we value your private financial gifts, we understand it is not the only way for alumni to give back to the department. Today, former students from our department find themselves immersed in a global market, hailing from a host of professional backgrounds. We firmly believe our students today could learn from the ones who came before them. If you have a job that pertains to a facet of Political Science, or are a former student looking to give back, we would love to hear from you.

You might consider:

  • Offering to guest lecture for a class
  • Informing us of an internship you or your company or agency offers
  • Meeting with students interested in your profession
  • Serving as a contact point for students who aspire for a similar career
  • Participating in a career panel

To give back in one of these ways (or if you have another idea), please contact us.
