Policy projects sought for Applied Policy Seminar

January 25, 2011

What do Amnesty International, the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the City of Warren Michigan, and Direct Relief International have in common? They put the skills of Ford School graduate students to work.

Could your organization use the analytic, problem-solving, and communication skills of top-notch MPP students?

We are currently accepting project proposals for our fall 2011 Applied Policy Seminar (APS), now called Strategic Public Policy Consulting or SPPC. The APS enables our MPP students to serve as consultants to real-world policy organizations, developing key professional skills as they tackle significant policy challenges in the public, private, or non-profit sectors.

The fall 2010 APS was featured in an episode of Out of the Blue, currently airing across the U.S. on the Big Ten Network.
