It’s Friday… and still thinking SIPA.

It’s Friday and all day the halls were bustling with activity — even though there are very few classes going on in the International Affairs Building today.  The academic year has begun and for the next eight months IAB will be busy.  After leaving a financial aid meeting, it was refreshing to join students at the Welcome Back reception.  The fascinating stories of our students’ summer adventures and their plans to better the global community  … makes our job of getting them here worthwhile.

One of  our newest members (from the Class of 2016) posted why she chose to come to SIPA on her personal Blog… Hope Hila doesn’t mind that I am linking to it here.  Reading her blog may give you another reason to study at SIPA and pursue a MPA degree… or it may just instill in you a reason to make a social impact… which is AWESOME too.



Our newest fall SIPA MIA/MPA class arrived today in New York for their week long Orientation.  We’re glad to have all 400+ of you here.  Welcome to SIPA!  We expect great things from you. We believe you will not disappoint us.

Stop by the Admissions Office to say hello, maybe in between math camp and lunch, but we’ll understand if you can’t break away  — hope to catch up later on in the semester.

Good luck on your next life adventure at SIPA.


"The most global public policy school, where an international community of students and faculty address world challenges."
