Virtual Summer Reunion
The sixth annual RAA summer reunion was the first of its kind—a remote reunion. Instead of gathering for barbeque at RAND's Santa Monica headquarters campus, online reunion content was created, including a virtual trip through RAND's history with RAND archivist Cara McCormick.
While this year's reunion format is a bit different from past events, the purpose is not. “We want RAND alumni to remain connected to RAND and to each other, especially during this time of physical distancing,” said John Murphy, associate director of development and alumni relations. “It was important for us to provide alumni with an opportunity to reminisce, from the comfort of their homes, until we can all reunite in person.”
