Alumni & Giving

A legacy of global citizenship

The Hamilton Lugar School of Global & International Studies opened its doors to students in 2013. Whether you graduated in the last five years or from one of the many global and area studies programs created before our establishment, you are a member of the Hamilton Lugar family.

Our alumni have served the nation and world with distinction. We are a community of diplomats, nonprofit leaders, humanitarian aid workers, scholars, veterans, technologists, and captains of industry. More importantly, we are a community that knows the value of giving back—of helping the next generation of global leaders find their footing in an increasingly complex world.

With your help, we will establish a strong pipeline of pragmatic, principled, and nonpartisan leaders who are well prepared to advance the global good.
