Reunions Recap 2017

Reunions Panel on Moving the Needle:
Princeton AlumniCorps and Systemic Social Change

Reunions Panelists: Arthur McKee ’90, Director of Research, CityBridge Education; Sodiqa Williams ’05, VP External Affairs, Safer Foundation; James Burgess ’09, Executive Director and Co-Founder of OpenBiome

AlumniCorps hosted a panel discussion entitled Moving the Needle: Princeton AlumniCorps and Systemic Social Change on Friday, June 2 during the 2017 Princeton University Reunions weekend. The discussion was moderated by AlumniCorps’ Director of Programs and Strategy, Caryn Tomljanovich and it focused on three AlumniCorps partner organizations that work to create systemic social change through philanthropy, policy, and research. The panelists were Arthur McKee ’90, Director of Research, CityBridge Education; Sodiqa Williams ’05, VP External Affairs, Safer Foundation; and James Burgess ’09, Executive Director and Co-Founder of OpenBiome. They spoke about their organizations and the contributions AlumniCorps programs–especially Project 55 Fellows–have made to their work.

Panelists Sodiqa, Arthur, and James field questions from the audience.

James said that OpenBiome in Boston is lucky this year because many of their PP55 Fellows are staying at the organization. “By the end of the first year they’re really doing a lot.” He commented to a laughing audience, “The main problem with the Project 55 program is that they’re all really good at getting into medical school… We feel so lucky to be able to have these types of folks coming on.”

Sodiqa spoke about the impact that their Project 55 Fellow, Aswari Sodhi ’15, had on Chicago’s Safer Foundation’s efforts to support clients with criminal records and facilitate their re-entry into the workforce. When it comes to funding advocacy for those with arrested convictions, Sodiqa asserted:”We need to invest in people, not property.” Aswari was vital to helping the organization draft and defend legislation that enables re-entry in Illinois.

Arthur sang the praises of the eight Fellows that CityBridge has had in Washington, D.C. Former Project 55 Fellow, Caitlin Sullivan ’07, was in the audience and asked how a sense of civic duty and public service can be encouraged in students while they’re still enrolled at Princeton. This question sparked great dialogue between audience members and panelists.

New Staff at 12 Stockton for Summer 2017!

Hema Lochan ’17, Program Associate

Hema Lochan ’16 joined Princeton AlumniCorps as Program Associate in July 2017. Hema left the orange bubble with a BA in Anthropology and a Certificate in Environmental Studies in 2016, but her love for Princeton and its dedication to service has brought her back to join AlumniCorps! In her short post-grad experience, she has worked with government organizations, start-ups, and nonprofits, and everything in between. She hopes to use her experiences (stemming from both Princeton and the “real world”) to help students find their path and to learn along the way. She is pursuing an Executive Education Certificate in Sustainability from Columbia University. In her free time, she can be found running marathons, doing stand-up comedy, or just watching Disney movies!


Sahand Rahbar 17, Princeton AlumniCorps Project 55 Fellow for 2017-18

Sahand Keshavarz Rahbar ’17 is from Boise, Idaho. He was born in Iran and raised in Idaho, an arrangement that has invested him with an appreciation for migration, intercultural understanding, and potatoes. A history major, he has been deeply involved in the work of the Religious Life Council and the Writing Center at Princeton. Through these endeavors, he has volunteered as a tutor at two New Jersey detention centers, has served as a language teacher and translator at a refugee camp in Greece, and has mobilized interfaith coalitions on campus to address issues related to incarceration and immigration. He is eager to continue developing his knowledge of the intersection between immigration, public awareness, and legal advocacy as the Bold Idea Fellow at Princeton AlumniCorps in Princeton, NJ. In his free time, Sahand enjoys learning new languages and encouraging his friends to read George Eliot’s MIDDLEMARCH.


Catherine Dillingham, summer intern at Princeton AlumniCorps for 2017

Catherine Dillingham is interning at Princeton AlumniCorps for the summer. She was born and raised in Hopewell, New Jersey. She recently graduated from Gettysburg College with a BA in Psychology. Along with Psychology, she double-minored in Political Science and Women’s Gender and Sexuality studies. Before joining Princeton AlumniCorps as an intern, Catherine worked in the non-profit sphere with HiTOPs in Princeton, the Women’s Law Project of Philadelphia, and at a local women’s shelter in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. During the summer of 2017 she is also working for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey, where she is doing political organizing. She has a strong passion for social justice work. In her free time, Catherine enjoys keeping active, spending time with family and friends, and vacationing down at the Jersey shore!

AlumniCorps: inspiration + unearthed passions for Cathy Malina ’05

Cathy Malina ’05

Cathy Malina ’05, Former PP55 Fellow at the Illinois Lt. Governor’s Office, Chicago

What led you to a PP55 Fellowship?

When I was a senior at Princeton, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in environmental advocacy.  At the same time, I had a clear interest in government and public service.  A Project 55 Fellowship working on state environmental policy and programs in the Illinois Lt. Governor’s Office was a perfect fit.

Which aspect of the Fellowship was most impactful to you and why?

One of the most meaningful parts of my Fellowship was our weekly seminar led by John Fish ’55. Every Wednesday morning, we met with inspiring community leaders and advocates working in different fields across Chicago. Each seminar broadened our perspectives and gave us the opportunity to learn important lessons about service and civic engagement. The seminars also allowed us to share our experiences at our individual Fellowships and helped create an amazing community for those of us who were new to the city.

Do you think your Fellowship had an impact on your chosen profession?

I’m an environmental attorney at a public interest law firm in San Francisco.  Previously, I worked at the Southern Environmental Law Center, focusing primarily on coal mining issues in Appalachia and advocacy for the Chesapeake Bay.  My Project 55 Fellowship had an undeniable impact on my career path by reinforcing my interest in service and guiding me towards law school.

Have you stayed in contact with anyone you met during your Fellowship?

I had a wonderful alumni mentor, Vince Anderson ’65, who welcomed me to Chicago so warmly and offered me great advice at the start of my career.  We stayed in touch after my Fellowship, and I was so happy to see him at Reunions a couple of years ago, when we both returned to Princeton for our 10th and 50th!

Why give to Princeton AlumniCorps?

Project 55 plays such an important role in inspiring civic engagement and encouraging Princeton students to pursue public interest careers.  Continuing support for the fellowship program enables young alumni to dedicate their energy and enthusiasm towards meaningful work and social change, having a true impact in our communities.

Current PP55 Fellow, Ramie Fathy ‘16 (far right, with co-workers at UCSF)

“Project 55 offers a chance to work ‘In the Nation’s Service and in the Service of Humanity’ in a structured, supportive environment with the freedom and time to reflect on one’s efforts, purpose, and ultimate goals. Fellowships involve high impact projects supervised by leaders in the field who are dedicated to our success.”


Former PP55 Fellow, Geoff Mitelman ’00 (pictured holding placard at a march)

“I’m the Founding Director of Sinai and Synapses, which bridges the worlds of religion and science…The work I did [as a Fellow at] Facing History, which uses the Holocaust as a lesson in human behavior, still influences me today. I use many of their methodologies in teaching. Their belief that history is a moral enterprise guides my rabbinate.”


Former PP55 Fellow, Julie Wingerter ’92 (at her 20th reunion with her family)

“The number of amazing PP55 alumni that are working for systemic change in our country is inspiring! These are smart people who are dedicating themselves to helping solve some of society’s toughest problems.”
