Moving Beyond Activism to Good Public Policy:  Having a Voice at the Table


Friday, September 28
9:00 am – 4:30 pm

It is indisputable that having diverse perspectives at the policy table leads to better, more effective and inclusive, public policy.  There continues to be a lack of trained policy professionals of color in leadership positions in the public policy community.  We must work collectively to address this problem….

The 2018 APPAM / Maxwell School Public Policy Camp is designed for promising undergraduate (sophomore – senior) students of color as an introduction to the field of public policy and administration.
