A Big List of Haverford College Alumni in Politics, Policy and Government

Help grow this list further. It’s a work-in-progress.

Since graduating from Haverford College in 2001, I’ve run into many fellow alumni working in politics and policy — and seen even more from afar.

For those current students interested in politics, policy and government, I thought it might be useful to compile a list to see the wide variety of career paths and people from Haverford have pursued post-graduation.

This list includes people working across a wide variety of industries, organizations, job functions, and is definitely bipartisan.

This is a work-in-progress and has been compiled from public information (Thank you LinkedIn, Wikipedia and Google). Apologies for people missed in the initial version or errors made. Please add notes in the comments to help add to the list, make corrections and/or updates. If you are on the list and would like to add information or be removed, please reach out in the comments or at drewem@gmail.com or 570–780–5660 (iMessage/Signal).
