Guiding Principles: Our Member Agreement

Please represent yourself honestly and treat others’ information with respect. Just be cool.

MOD/MPOD grads are uniquely suited to help the world move forward. When we band together, we can be a powerful, positive force for progress, and we hope this directory will be a catalyst to help that happen.

We are a community of people who truly believe in the power of the whole, who know that trust is the bedrock of our relationships. To maintain that trust, please use the information in this Directory in the spirit with which it is shared and for the purposes it has been envisioned: reconnect with your cohort, make new friends, find support for projects, brainstorm ideas, and enhance your network.

If you believe someone is not honoring these principles, please let us know by email to

Privacy: How Your Information is Shared

  • The Directory is private and intended for the exclusive use of graduates of the MOD and MPOD Masters programs at Case Western Reserve University.
  • Email Addresses are hidden from all listings: if a graduate clicks the “connect” button on your listing, a form will allow them to send you a message without disclosing your email address. 
  • Map locations and phone numbers are displayed to other graduates.
    • Phone numbers are omitted by default, but you’re welcome to list yours if you prefer.
    • By default, locations are no more specific than city, state, and nation, to help graduates locate others in their general geographic area.
    • While you are able to be as specific as your street address, we recommend being no more specific than your city.
  • The Directory has no mass-email or mass-contact functionality: if you wish to connect with a broad audience, please consider an alternate method:
