75 years of Comparative Human Development

Dear Alumni, Friends, Former Faculty, and Intellectual Offspring of the Committee on Human Development/Department of Comparative Human Development at the University of Chicago,

We are so thrilled that so many of you were able to come to the 75th anniversary, and we would like to thank you so much for making it a magnificent event.  You brought wonderful enthusiasm to the whole weekend. Everyone seems to have had a very good time.

For those of you who were unable to attend we are very sorry that we missed you.  However, there is still a chance to participate even if you were not able to be here in person! We would love to start collecting writings from alumni about CHD. This could be fond memories, a theory that started here, or just comments about how the department has influenced you. These recollections can be about the 75th, or just about CHD in general! Either way we would love to hear from you, and you can enter your sumbissions here.

Further, some of the biggest take away messages from the weekend were the desires for alumni to stay in touch with each other and the broader HD community and to keep up with information about the department. We would love to hear how you would prefer to receive HD information.  If you would like to let us know just follow the link below to a very short survey! We hope to compile a yearly news article about the department including visitors, faculty and student work, and an alumni support network. Please tell us your thoughts here.

Warmest regards from the 75th Year Organizing Committee
