Alumni

Alumni of CPL’s Fellowship programs are a vibrant force for change. They are exhibiting leadership across diverse fields with 43% working in the health care, education and nonprofit sectors, 33% in the private sector, and 23% in government. Graduates of our fellowship programs knit lifetime bonds during their time at CPL and HKS and support each other’s professional and personal journeys far beyond the years they spend at HKS.

CPL’s nearly 600 Fellowship alumni are shaping the public and private leadership landscape in highly-visible and meaningful ways.
