Alumni Association

The Alumni Association of the Carolina Master of Public Administration program is the formal organizational structure and maintenance of an on-going professional association of graduates and friends of the MPA program.


The mission of the Carolina MPA Alumni Association is to advance and support public service leaders by maintaining and strengthening connections among alumni, students, and faculty.

To support this mission we will focus our efforts in the areas of connection, collaboration, and contribution.

The program’s core values are:

  • Collaboration
  • Diversity
  • Stewardship
  • Integrity
  • Professionalism
  • Exploration


All matriculants of the Carolina MPA Program are eligible for full membership in the Alumni Association.  Full members hold voting rights, and are eligible for elected office and all privileges afforded members of the Alumni Association.  In addition, cooperating membership may be extended to those who have an interest in the MPA Program at UNC-CH and the betterment of public service.  Cooperative members may not hold elective office in the Association, nor may they vote.  For more information on membership, please visit the Membership page.

Current MPA students are always welcome—and encouraged—to attend any Alumni Association-sponsored events!
