Since the first class of MPIA candidates graduated in 1989, we have welcomed more than 2,500 alumni into our global network.
We are launching a new Class Notes initiative. Tell us where you've been and what you're doing now. Email Mary Jo Ball with your 1-2 sentence class note and be sure to include name, degree and class year. We will then repost them on a new IR/PS page coming soon for you to read about what your fellow alumni are up to today!
Here are examples:
Jane (Adams) Doe, MPIA ’04 who previously worked for ABC Company, has accepted a position at BBC Corporation as the company’s creative director in San Diego, CA.
John Doe, MAS-IA '11 recently took up running and completed his first half-marathon at this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego event.

IR/PS recognizes graduates for success in their careers and contributions to society with the annual Outstanding Alumni Award. Nominations are made by alumni, faculty and staff, and winners are chosen by a committee made up of alumni.
The 2013 Outstanding Award Winner is Emily Murase, MPIA '90.
Emily has served as Executive Director of the San Francisco Department on the Status of Women since 2004 and most recently elected as one of seven Board Commissioners for the San Francisco Public Schools.
