Students & Alumni

Attention Hunter Urban Alums! Whether you recently moved, changed jobs or just plain lost touch, please take a moment to let us know by using our Alumni Reconnect form. Thank you, and we look forward to being back in touch!

Students who enter our programs arrive at Hunter UAP from any number of different locations and disciplines. It is not uncommon to attend classes with working professionals, recent graduates, or career changers. The diverse voices within the student body enrich discussions in the classrooms while exposing students to a variety of perspectives on urban issues.

Once graduated, alumni of Urban Studies, Affairs and Planning are lifetime members of the Hunter UAP community. We value their support and participation in the ongoing life of our department. Below you will find a small sampling of where our alumni go following the completion of a Hunter UAP program. Beyond this list there are hundreds of Hunter Urban Alumni working to improve the quality of life in cities for residents.

In the profiles below, meet some of our students & alumni and catch a glimpse of Hunter UAP is all about.
