Policy in Practice Seminars

Enhancing skills, advancing careers

Our extra-curricular Policy in Practice seminars (PiPs), host policy professionals and researchers who share their experience and insight with MPA students. PiPs provide students with an opportunity to discuss a wide range of economic and social issues and connect classroom learning to real world situations. These dynamic seminars are informal and students are encouraged to ask questions and interact with the speakers in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
