Our alumni work both domestically and internationally to tackle the biggest challenges to global development. They work as practitioners, analysts, and advisors for public, private, and nonprofit organizations across a wide variety of sectors.

Many alumni stay engaged with GHD and provide mentorship to current students through GHD’s Alumni Mentorship Program, which launched in the fall of 2017. Interested students are connected with volunteer alumni who share similar professional interests.
