Alumni Giving

"Simply put, I would not have had the professional opportunities—or the ability to capitalize on them—without my Mailman education. My education was granted through the generosity of those alumni who came before me, and it is now my opportunity to continue building the bridge to opportunity for those who will follow."- Carlos Cuevas, MPH ’12, Development Committee Chair, Alumni Board

“Mailman students are our future public health professionals, alumni colleagues and change-makers. It’s a privilege to be a part of a giving community of alumni who support our future leaders and provide opportunities for them to grow.” - Kathleen Crowley, PA-C, MPH ’91, DrPH ’13, Alumni Board President

"At the Mailman School, I was surrounded by talented students from around the world and learned from their perspectives. I had the privilege of listening to such experts as Professors Lawrence Brown, Thomas Ference, Michael Sparer, Sherry Glied, and Joseph Stiglitz, and to be infused with their knowledge, patience, enthusiasm, and kindness. It was an incredible opportunity to study and walk in the campus of a university with over 250 years of excellence in the most diverse and dynamic city in the nation, New York. This is what the Mailman experience is all about. I love helping today’s students experience that and fulfill their dreams as well." - Elena Tobin MPH '07
