Alumni and Friends

As alumni and friends of the Les Aspin Center for Government, you understand the uniqueness of our programs and the impact they have on our students.

During the past 30 years, the Les Aspin Center has transformed more than 2,500 students into women and men dedicated to our political process and affecting change in our nation’s capital, in their communities, and around the world. The Les Aspin Center would not be what it is today without your help.

Les Aspin Alumni Council

This year, we have reestablished the Les Aspin Alumni Council, composed of student interns in the Office of Public Affairs who have participated in the Les Aspin or Kleczka Programs. As part of their mission to connect alum, they have created the newsletter to inform alumni about the Aspin Center, the Kleczka Program, Alumni Council programming and the success of our former students.
