POLICY

Every semester, we complete policy research under the guidance and mentorship of officials within U.S. government agencies, foreign governments, non-profits, and think tanks.


We are deeply appreciative of the support that our partners (below) provide in doing their part to offer real-world training to the next generation. Each project is completed by a team of undergraduates led by a policy chair (listed).

*We do not take any formal policy positions as an organization to ensure the impartial research and learning of our members
