Are you interested in the role that public policy can play in creating more just and equitable communities? Are you considering joining that struggle and building a career of real impact in public policy?

Come and meet the leaders of some of the top public policy schools in the country in a special event hosted by U.S. Representative Joyce Beatty (D-OH) and sociologist Celeste Watkins-Hayes, interim dean of the University of Michigan’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy. They will be joined in conversation with Trevor Brown, Dean of The Ohio State University Glenn College of Public Affairs, and Maria Cancian, Dean of the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University.

The dean’s panel and the reception to follow will be both inspiring and informative. Don’t miss this opportunity to take your first step toward a career working for the public good.


This event is open to Congressional Black Caucus fellows, all Congressional staff and interns, and any prospective student of the participating policy schools. Registration is required by December 2.
