Description

Taken by all MPP1 students, this two-week, concentrated, integrative course will engage students in a practical policy exercise, which will draw upon knowledge gained from the core courses. Students will be grouped into small teams and given a specific policy problem. These teams will be expected to prepare products (memoranda, briefings, and presentations, both oral and written) of professional quality. The core faculty will assist in advising each of the teams. The exercise is meant to provide a realistic experience and will involve outside experts, in addition to the faculty, who will lecture on the policy topic as well as assist in judging the final products.

The Spring Exercise will be held during the last two weeks of the spring semester. All other MPP1 courses will be suspended during this two-week period. This course is not open to non-MPP1 students.
