Whether they join us in person or virtually, our current students are always excited to hear from those in the expansive network of DRC alumni from around the world.

Inspire the Future
Our alumni value providing hands-on experiences for our students, be it through practicums, internships, and invitations for students to come and share their innovative research with the alum’s organization. Some have even designated awards to support students through assistantships, summer internship stipends, and travel support to attend conferences.
