Event Information

We're excited to welcome three recent alums, all of whom are GPI alumni, back to USC for a virtual panel! These three alums graduated from USC in 2019, and are currently working in the fields of US politics, government and public affairs consulting and international development.

GPI invites students for a virtual panel on Wednesday, February 10 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. PST. The panel invites the alums to share their post-grad experiences and invites current students to ask questions during a Q&A portion at the end.

This is a great way for students to network with recent graduates and to learn about career paths after receiving an international relations degree from USC.
