The Evans School has spent this last year mapping our incredible community of more than 4,000 alumni, across 6 continents, 56 countries, 47 U.S. states, and 684 cities. We know the impact we make is real—but, since this is the Evans School, Dean Archibald challenged staff to gather data in order to understand this phenomenon. 

At the Evans School Fellowship Dinner this fall, Dean Archibald presented this project for the first time, revealing the local, national, and global scope of our alumni community—and the tremendous potential for even greater impact still to come. Today, the national and global impact of the Evans School is undeniable. In the most recent decade, our growth in scope and scale has been tremendous.

While the School has long prided itself on the tremendous reach of our alumni community, that reach has been primarily anecdotal. Government leaders around the Pacific Northwest tell us that Evans School graduates run their offices. Meetings at the International City/County Management Association turn into informal reunions and Evans School classmates bump into each other in the halls of Congress in D.C.

Thanks to this deep dive into our alumni community, we know that Evans School graduates are advancing in their careers all around the world. More than 1800 organizations, government entities, businesses, and agencies employ Evans School graduates. In addition, HALF of our total alumni population has graduated only in this past decade, which means that the Evans School potential for an even greater impact is high.

This year, Dean Archibald and members of the Alumni Relations team will travel to six cities—Olympia, WA, Portland, OR, San Francisco, CA, Washington, D.C., Spokane, WA, and Seattle—to connect with members of the School’s alumni community.
