Office of Alumni Affairs

The Office of Alumni Affairs facilitates the participation of over 4,000 School of Public Health alumni in the life of the School. The office develops and implements programs which sustain an active alumni network and strengthens institutional relationships. The office connects YSPH alumni to our students, faculty and administration. Serving as an agent between alumni and students has increased opportunities for student internships and jobs after graduation.

In addition, the office administers the Association of Yale Alumni in Public Health (AYAPH), which comprises graduates of both the MPH and doctoral programs elected to represent the social and professional interests of YSPH alumni. In partnership with AYAPH, the office serves as an advocate for alumni, ensuring that graduates have appropriate input into School policy.
