RSEA Alumni Panels

The RSEA Alumni Panel is an annual gathering of the RSEA community of alumni, students, faculty, and staff. 

The event provides current students with an opportunity to meet several alumni who are invited to share their experiences, reflections, and advice on careers after RSEA. Students appreciate hearing how others have applied the skills gained through the RSEA program as a springboard to academic and non-academic careers.

The RSEA Alumni Panel events are sponsored by the GSAS Gochman Dean’s Fund for Innovation and Development, made possible by a generous donation by RSEA alumnus David Gochman (AM’90).
