Our Alumni

Since 1970 more than 2000 students have successfully graduated from the School of Public Service. 

Our graduates act as ambassadors of the school when they encourage current and future students, stay abreast of program developments, and support school events. Our robust and enthusiastic Alumni Associations assists and advances the school and its graduates in their pursuit of excellence in the public service community, both in the U.S. and abroad, while fostering pride, loyalty, and a lifelong connection between alumni and DePaul University. Our Alumni Associations also celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates in university publications​

In conjunction with the Alumni Association, alumni can connect with new and current students to act as mentors, leaders, and friends. The Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) program provides the opportunity for alumni to reflect on their experiences at DePaul and discuss their current positions. For more information or to join the ASK program become a fan of ASK on Facebook.

Staying connected after graduation offers many benefits:
