The Ford Schools hosts dozens of events every year with the goal of providing students, faculty, alumni and the public with insight into key policy discussion on a range of topics.
In addition to livestreamed public events, our visitors meet in small groups with students and faculty, going in-depth on critical policy and political issues, or exploring and coaching for career development and leadership lessons.
Students are active participants in our public events. Students are often the source of connections with prospective visitors. And they lead the question and answer sessions that close each event.
Our public events are presented with generous support from partners and friends of the Ford School. Learn more about our named lecture series.
