(3:00 pm at Douglass Student Center, Trayes Hall)
In this unusual election year, Eagleton is hosting a different post-election program.

11/18 – Annual Eagleton Alumni Get Together
(6:00-10:00 pm at Wood Lawn)
Join us for post-election conversation over great food and drinks at our annual "welcome back to Wood Lawn" night.

Classes of 1966, 1976, 1986, 1996, 2006 and 2016 are especially encouraged to come celebrate their class reunions. Cost is $25/person cash or check at the door. Guests are welcome!

Eagleton Alumni Committee and Alumni Directory
The Eagleton Alumni Committee was established in conjunction with the Institute's 50th anniversary in 2006 to encourage connections, unity, and a sense of belonging among Eagleton alumni; to support alumni in their professional and personal endeavors through networking opportunities and other activities; and to support the research, education, and public service efforts of the Eagleton Institute of Politics. For more information or to get involved, contact Sarah Kozak at

To encourage networking, the Eagleton Alumni Committee publishes a digital directory late each fall of all Eagleton alumni (Fellows and Undergraduate Associates). The directory is only distributed to Eagleton alumni in a secure format. The digital directory includes name and professional contact information as well as listings of alumni by type, class/year and geographical location. Home and cell phone numbers are not listed.

The 2016 alumni directory is now available. If you need assistance accessing the directory please contact Sarah Kozak at

We are asking all alumni to update their contact information using the online form here. The deadline to update your contact information for the 2017 Alumni Directory is December 1, 2016. If you do not want your professional contact information to be included in the Alumni Directory, please note your preferences on the contact form.
