This initiative promotes a practical exploration of the challenges of implementing public policy, with an emphasis on lessons learned from practitioners. The Center attracts fellows from government service who can share their knowledge and experience with students. In addition, the Center seeks interdisciplinary research collaboration with other academic units that examine the governance process.
The Center also promotes opportunities for students to pursue internships, coursework, and a variety of learning experiences. By interacting with alumni, elected officials, and the spectrum of policy practitioners, students gain a sophisticated understanding of the current process and proposals for reform.
