Alumni

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

CPL’s 622 Fellowship alumni are shaping the public and private leadership landscape in highly-visible and meaningful ways.
