Whether learners work in government, business, nonprofits, activism, entrepreneurship, or community organization, effective leaders are constantly working on policies that address pressing public problems. In Policy Design and Delivery, created by Michael Walton, senior lecturer in public policy at Harvard Kennedy School, in concert with a team of the School’s learning designers, you can acquire the knowledge to analyze, design, and recommend policies to effect change in your community.

“I have found that the faculty, the guest speakers, and the diversity of the students have enriched my learning experience beyond my expectations.”

- Jill Wierbicki Abrahams, PLC Learner
