Give back to HGSE and support the next generation of passionate educators and innovative leaders.



At HGSE, our alumni are an essential part of our work and community. You contribute to our mission to improve education, and you help to inform our teaching, research, and community engagement. You are our ambassadors to the field of education — forming an important network of educators and leaders who are shaping the future of education. We are proud to learn from you, proud to partner with you, and proud to celebrate you as you work to improve education for all.

Even after graduation, you remain a lifelong part of the HGSE community. On this site, you will find connections to the benefits and supports you can enjoy as a member of this community. You will also find ways to engage and connect with students, faculty, and fellow alumni who share your commitment to the essential work of education. We appreciate all you to do give back, sharing your experiences and expertise to help build lifelong networks of great professional and personal value.

I also thank you for supporting HGSE financially. Your generous philanthropic support has helped us expand access to financial aid, grow our research programs in extraordinary ways, and expand outreach and support to practitioners in the field. Equally important, you demonstrate the impact of our programs — making the case for HGSE through the work you do every day.  

Thank you for all you do — and I look forward to connecting with you.
