Beyond the Classroom

Learning is not confined to the classroom. Our students explore policy issues through student-run organizations, public affairs programming, and more.
As members of small cohorts in full-time residential programs, students really get to know their classmates and learn from each other’s diverse experiences, interests, and backgrounds.
