Working in partnership with communities, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders both locally and globally, our faculty and students bring fresh thinking to complex challenges such as climate change, crime, education, healthcare, immigration, pollution, poverty, sustainability, and water and energy security.
If you are interested in supporting our students by providing internships, please contact our Career Counselor and Academic Internship Program Coordinator.
We welcome community members to attend our various events. Come learn from policy makers, practitioners, and researchers, and bring what you learn back to your community.
MPP Policy Day
Every year, we put together a "Policy Day" for our students. If you are interested in hosting Policy Day, please contact our Director of Development.
2018 Coachella Valley
In 2018, current MPP students attended a day-long event in the Coachella Valley featuring civic and business leaders as well as elected officials discussing the unique policy challenges and opportunities they face in the region. The event included a Young Electeds Panel, a State and Regional Policy Discussion, and a Community Health Panel, and culminated in a reception.
Made possible with the generous support of Southwest Airlines, this day-long visit to Sacramento included presentations by policy makers and analysts on the policy process ranging from legislative conceptualization to policy implementation, budgeting and evaluation. 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.
