Policy MattersPhins in Policy
Welcome to the Public Policy Alumni Network! We're a dynamic, talented group of graduates whose areas of interest, as vast as they are, are all rooted in policy. Among our network are established business professionals, educational leaders, healthcare policy specialists, pollsters, political analysts, public officials, veteran policy leaders, psychologists, lawyers, non-profit organizers, and much more. As the need for integrity and specialization in policy grows, so also does our need for support. Thus, the goals of our network are to:
- Promote the Public Policy Institute locally and nationally;
- Promote community connections by fostering partnerships with local organizations and leaders;
- Promote career advancement and networking by facilitating events and expanding communication strategies to connect alumni and current students;
- Promote mentorship and service by encouraging volunteer opportunities and partnership connections; and
- Cultivate a supportive network of public servants and policy leaders.

The Public Policy Alumni Network is devoted to accountability, civility, courage, integrity, and stewardship. This means holding public institutions and servants accountable to those they serve; treating all people of any viewpoint with respect and dignity; confronting extreme difficulty and challenges with determination and conviction; leading with honesty and good character; and taking care of the society that is entrusted to each of us. This is what it means to be a Jacksonville University Public Policy alumnus.
Membership in the Public Policy Alumni Network is open to all graduates of the Jacksonville University Public Policy Institute. Each year, the Alumni Network will host events to connect public policy alumni and showcase the policy areas in which our alumni work. Stay tuned for more information regarding our philanthropy, professional engagements, and service opportunities.

Be part of something bigger.
The public policy ecosphere extends beyond legislation and formal rule-making processes. Advocates and organizers work within communitites to identify and elevate solutions to the challenges they face. The Public Policy Alumni Network seeks to partner with local organizations and experts to better understand the policy and regulatory landscape of different social issue areas. We also support organizers and advocates by volunteering in community outreach and direct service programs. Reach out to our Community Engagement & Partnership Chair, Javon Knight, to discuss partnership opportunities and service opportunities that are open to our alumni.
