Message from the RAA President

Natalie Crawford

The RAND Alumni Association (RAA) was created to help alumni connect with each other and stay connected to RAND. I’m proud that strong ties forged here endure today.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the RAA and your support of the Alumni Impact Fund (AIF). The success of this year’s AIF campaign—we raised a record-breaking $125,000—was a direct result of your generosity. With your support, our research team is working to advance education and career prospects for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals. We look forward to updating you on the project and its progress.

Each year, we come together to celebrate RAND’s past, present, and future at the annual RAA summer reunion. You’ll be receiving an invitation soon, but I hope you will save the date, June 20, to join us in Santa Monica. It’s such a pleasure to see old friends and meet the new members of our community.

You strengthen RAND and your legacy is strong. I encourage you to read about RAND’s greatest accomplishments of the previous year in the Annual Report, which describes how RAND uses rigorous, evidence-based research and analysis to make a difference in the lives of people throughout the world.

I’m deeply grateful for your support of RAND and look forward to celebrating with you at our reunion in June.
