MPP Sacramento Policy Seminar

UCR MPP Sacramento Policy Seminar

(with support from Southwest Airlines)

The UCR MPP Sacramento Policy Seminar, made possible with the generous support of Southwest Airlines, provided an experiential learning opportunity to UCR MPP students and introduced them to the workings of the state government and its agencies.

Held in the Spring of 2016, the UCR MPP Sacramento Policy Seminar put policy theory into practice by connecting the inaugural cohort of MPP students to state executive and legislative leaders responsible for policies affecting Inland Southern California and the rest of the state. The day-long visit to Sacramento by UCR MPP students included presentations by policy makers and analysts on the complete gamut of the policy process –- from legislative conceptualization to policy implementation, budgeting and evaluation. Examples were drawn from key sectors such as the environment, health, education and criminal justice. Students also had an opportunity to meet informally with legislators, policy analysts, and executive agency staff in a reception held at the end of the day.

The MPP Sacramento Policy Seminar was developed and designed by MPP inaugural cohort student, Jesse Melgar, and the MPP Graduate Student Association.
