Students who graduate from CKM’s Humanities and International Studies Program continue their exploration of the world and their own personal journeys of self-discovery during their college years and beyond. HISP alumni—nearly 2,500 since the program’s inception in 1985 (see HISP History)—have taken that unique global perspective gained from HISP and applied their remarkable skills and talents in a wide array of fields and in all parts of the world. Some have made their mark on the state, national, and international stage. Many have embraced a life filled with work that changes the world—one step at a time. Others have explored their own creativity and expressed themselves through varied artistic endeavors. HISP alumni are invited to join our Facebook group to stay in the loop on alumni news and events.
