Celebrating RAND's 70 Years

RAND 70th anniversary logo

May 14, 2018 marks the day when Project RAND separated from Douglas Aircraft Company of Santa Monica and became an independent, nonprofit organization known as the RAND Corporation. The RAND Alumni Association will celebrate RAND's 70th anniversary with special themed activities at the fourth annual RAA summer reunion. Please save the date—June 21, 2018—for this special event at RAND's Santa Monica headquarters campus.

The summer reunion is an opportunity to reconnect and socialize with colleagues and to meet new members of the RAND community. Guests at the upcoming reunion will be able to explore the ways RAND research has made significant contributions to society, and can view items from the RAND Archives in a new interactive history exhibit in the public space of our Santa Monica building. It includes a multimedia timeline of RAND's history, old RAND documents and photographs, as well as more recent artifacts and videos about the innovation and impact of RAND's research. Join us to celebrate RAND's 70 years of innovation and impact.
