Stay in touch with the O'Neill School

When students enter the Paul H. O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, many of them have a personal mission to make a difference in our communities and our world. They know that to accomplish this goal, O’Neill is their best starting place because of the knowledge provided in the classroom and the opportunities you, as alumni, are able to share with them and the school.
