Dean's Message

Dear Sanford Alumni and Friends,

As 2022 comes to a close, I wish our alumni, faculty, staff, friends and amazing students a wonderful winter break.
This video message celebrates YOU, the people and community of Sanford, whose passion and compassion translate our effort into impact.

As we head into 2023, all of us at the Sanford School of Public Policy send good wishes for the year ahead. Sanford is building the future of public policy, with new programs, faculty and initiatives.

On behalf of the Sanford School of Public Policy, I wish you a wonderful holiday season and a very happy 2023.
Warm regards,
Judith Kelley
