PPA Alumni

students walking under ginko treesMPPA Alumni are prominent members of the Sacramento State Hornets Policy & Politics Alumni Group, a chapter of the Sacramento State Alumni Association for alumni who work in public policy, state or local government, or politics.

This chapter was officially established in May 2012 to build a network of Sac State alumni who work in state or local government, public policy research or advocacy, political organization, public affairs, or political journalism. As such, graduates of the MPPA program are an integral part of Policy & Politics Alumni.

The network's purpose is to advance the professional development of those alumni in the State Capitol region, enhance the prospects of current students aspiring to like careers, and leverage Sacramento State's unique proximity to California's political and governmental center into the continued excellence and development of its academic programs.
