Sackler hosts new events and reaches out to its alumni as it works on the Capital Campaign.

Dear Sackler Community,

I had the pleasure of seeing many of our alumni at an event at MPM Capital generously hosted by Greg Sieczkewicz (SK00), chief counsel for MPM and CEO of Picket Fence IP. We had alumni who graduated in the 1990s to some that defended this month (Antonia Pugliese) or are just about to (Christina McGuire). Alumni came from as far as New York (David Greenwald, (SK11) and Istanbul (Tugba Bagci, SK09). The buzz at the reception was wonderful and people enjoyed reconnecting or meeting others from different eras. I spoke of our new mission to train to career excellence and this message resonated well with these leaders in industry, IP, consulting and academia. It reminds me of how special our community of training is. This week we will have a first meeting of our Capital Campaign committee to increase engagement with our alumni who are happy to give back and pay it forward with their time, talent and financial gifts.

Dan Jay, Dean
