The SIS Alumni Society is an active community of SIS graduates who provide the connection between the school and its alumni. The Society provides valuable support to the school at conferences, in recruitment and by financial contributions. The SIS Alumni Society also helps  by encouraging alumni to stay connected to the school via email and address updates and listserv participation.  The brochure below provides an overview of the SIS Alumni Society.
