You came to The Washington Center looking for the experience of a lifetime. You left realizing this was just the beginning.

Whether you were at The Washington Center last year, or three decades ago, in a semester long program, a short-term seminar or any of our programs, TWC is committed to being a lifelong resource for you.   

We cannot replace your undergraduate or graduate experience, but we want to be considered your “other alma mater.” We invite you to stay in contact with us and help us carry out our mission in the following ways: 

  • Be informed. You’ll receive alumni e-newsletters, networking opportunities, professional development programming, event invitations, and other communications that keep you connected to TWC and your alumni peers.   

  • Be social. Leverage the TWC network by remaining active on our LinkedIn and Facebook groups. 

  • Be a change-maker. Alumni play an important role in helping us deliver the same high quality TWC experience for the next generation by serving as internship hosts, mentors, and guest speakers and more. Your involvement can transform someone’s life. 

  • Be generous. In addition to your time and service, TWC also needs alumni to support our mission financially. Every dollar helps us deliver accessible, equitable and innovative programs that create opportunities for a rewarding job or career for learners of all backgrounds. Moreover, a strong showing of support from our alumni opens the doors to foundation and corporate support.  

The Office of Advancement and Partnerships is here to serve you. Meet the team:
