Stay Connected

The BYU Marriott MPA program has close to 4,000 alumni scattered throughout the globe. You can see how far-reaching the program is by viewing the MPA program’s alumni map.

We are inspired by your accomplishments and want to share them with future and current students, faculty, and employers. When something interesting (not just job related) occurs in your life, or in the life of an alum you know, don’t be shy—share your good news with us. Who knows, you may end up being featured on our website!

There are many ways to connect with the BYU Marriott MPA program. Choose one or more of the following:

MPA Recurring Alumni Events

Annual Day of Service: Every year in either late March or early April, the Romney Institute of Public Service and Ethics hosts a Day of Service. Alumni and students gather for the morning to participate in community projects like planting trees or cleaning parks and river trails. After the service project, box lunches are served, allowing time for students and alumni to connect and share experiences.

Alumni Fireside: Join us the third Monday in August from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. for our annual alumni panel fireside. This is a chance to listen to panelists, interact with students and other alumni, and grow intellectually and spiritually. Past topics have included leadership, ethics, and finding your calling. Watch for your invitation via email in June. For those of you who can’t attend in person, we will record the fireside and send the link to you a week or two after.

LinkedIn Group

The official BYU Marriott MPA George W. Romney Institute of Public Service & Ethics LinkedIn group is used exclusively by our current students and alumni. Here you can find professional development tips and job opportunities. It allows our alums to connect through networking, sharing experiences and ideas, giving advice, etc. It is a great way to stay informed and involved!

Our group is a closed group. If you are not already a member and wish to join, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Visit the group page.
  2. If you are not already pre-approved, follow the simple instructions to join.
  3. Wait to receive a LinkedIn notification after your request has been vetted to ensure you are an alum.
  4. Accept the notification.

Social Media

The BYU Marriott MPA is also on other social media networks. You can keep up with the program and its faculty, alumni, and students on the following platforms:

Alumni Directories

Our students and alumni are encouraged to include their BYU Marriott MPA degree in the education section of their personal profiles. Doing so not only increases the visibility of BYU Marriott’s MPA program, but it includes students and alumni in the BYU Marriott School of Business LinkedIn alumni database, a powerful tool for networking and keeping up with other alumni.

The BYU Marriott alumni directory is an excellent resource for looking up a former classmate.

Class Representatives

The Romney Institute appoints a class representative from each graduated MPA, EMPA, and MHA class to serve on the Romney Institute Alumni Board. Class representatives are the primary contact for their classmates to receive information about the Romney Institute and for the Romney Institute to connect with graduates. The purpose of class representatives is to facilitate more interaction with alumni of the program.

Listed below by program and year are the names of the current class representatives serving. To learn more about your representative, click on their name. To contact your representative directly or if you don’t see a representative for your class, contact the MPA alumni administrator.
