Alumni Snapshots

What will I do with a degree from ISF?  This is an important question with a wide variety of answers, with new answers being written all the time!  Our alumni have gone on to work and study in a wide variety of contexts.  We invite you to hear from them in their own words to get a sense of how their degree has prepared them for the work they are doing now, and how they are applying their ISF experience to their life and work now.
