Central to the Muskie School's mission is the charge by Senator Edmund S. Muskie to "develop leaders, develop knowledge, and develop ways in which to use knowledge." Every day, our alumni are carrying this legacy forward into the 21st century by making a real difference in the lives of people throughout Maine and the nation.
More than 500 alumni work in government, private, and non-profit settings around the world. Alumni participate in the life of the school by speaking at events, being guest lecturers in classes, and providing internships for students. They provide a valuable network for current students entering the workplace. Each spring, the alumni sponsor a networking event where alums talk about their work experiences and job searches, and provide advice and support to graduating students.
