SPEA Connect Provides Flexible Professional Development for Alums
This article is sponsored by Indiana University’s SPEA Connect online MPA program. SPEA Connect is currently recruiting for its online MPA program with advanced curriculum areas in public management, nonprofit management, policy analysis, and public finance. SPEA Connect also offers graduate certificate programs in public management, nonprofit management, and public financial management.
Along with more than 75 AmeriCorps Alums who have enrolled in SPEA graduate programs in the last 5 years, Anna Bragin and Erica Abrams Yan are able to take advantage of SPEA Connect’s credit waiver policy that provides any student who served in AmeriCorps with a credit waiver of 3 hours ($3,165 discount) up to a maximum of 6 hours ($6,330 discount). Because Anna and Erica are both busy professionals, the flexible and convenient structure of the SPEA Connect online MPA program allows them to study where and when it is most convenient for them.

25 Grad Schools Show Commitment to AmeriCorps Alumni
Graduate schools ranging from business, international development, education, social work, and public policy hosted booths to recruit alumni at two Virtual Grad School Fairs. Nearly a thousand alums took advantage of chatting one-on-one with recruiters from schools who understand the value of national service and offer financial incentives to alums. One community development program says, “Having alums in the classroom enhances our mission and the experience of other students because they understand the value of diversity and collaboration in building communities.” While an online program shares, “Alums have the motivation, proactive spirit, and skills relevant to succeed in online courses and a 21st century workplace.” If you missed out on our two grad fairs last month, bookmark our Events Calendar to make sure you know when the next virtual fairs are scheduled.
Discover Your Inner Entrepreneur
If there were a reality show that challenged a person to initiate a service project in a junk yard with no budget and only five volunteers, an AmeriCorps alum in the game would win every time. Alums are known for having the ingenuity and initiative to create something from nearly nothing. Discover more of your inner entrepreneur with our webinar, “Global Social Innovations” on 12/10 from 2 – 3 PM EST. Panelists include Michael Gale, who manages programs at GlobalGiving; Mona Mowafi, Co-founder and President of RISE Egypt; and Ryan Sarafolean, who started a nonprofit called KGSA Foundation that combats poverty and gender inequalities in the Kibera slums of Nairobi, Kenya.
