What's new at the Hertie School
Edition 6 | Academic Year 22/23 | 3 May 2023

Dear friends of the Hertie School,

There is no doubt about it: the strength of every community is its social network. At the Hertie School, we are very proud that many of our alumni, adjuncts and associated staff maintain their ties with us after their time on campus has ended.

This edition of our newsletter focuses on the achievements of our alumni community. Be it Alejandra Leal Vallejo, who just received our 2023 Alumni Achievement Award, Faruk Tuncer, who talks about founding his own GovTech company, or the alums who came to the launch event of our new alumni chapter in Vienna – we are proud that their time at the Hertie School has contributed to their professional and personal achievements.  

Our alumni will also come together from 16 to 18 June at this year’s Hertie Summit. Registrations are now open.

For more stories and facts about our research, teaching and policy work, I invite you to read on.

With best wishes,

Prof. Cornelia Woll
