Dear Fellow Jane Addams Alum,
Alumni hold a special place for their alma mater. For us, the Jane Addams College of Social Work is a part of the story of our lives. Many of us chose Jane Addams because of its reputation as a premier institution with a strong mission for social justice. As a student, I was surrounded by classmates and faculty who shared my commitment to working with the poor and oppressed. As a professional, I am proud to say I am a Jane Addams alumna. Today I think about the impact the College has had in my life and I want to give back.
I hope you feel this same sense of pride as a Jane Addams alumnus as I do and that it inspires you to stay connected with us!
