PPCY 100: Public Policy Incubator

This course emulates the kind of work taking place at thinktanks, non-government organizations, government agencies, and political offices. After a four-week introduction to a particular public policy issue, students work in our "public policy incubator" to produce white papers on an array of issues. Policy and industry leaders join regularly to help students hone their analysis in ways that allow for real-world consideration and discussion by policy makers. Teams produce white papers with executive summaries and develop presentations of their analyses. All teams are required to submit their work to the College’s annual Public Policy Challenge. White papers are also presented to external policy makers. No prerequisites. (Under the Forester Fundamental Curriculum, this course meets the Experiential Learning requirement.)
