So many ways to change the world

School of Public Policy graduates are change makers, transforming the policies that shape their communities, states, countries, and beyond. They are on the forefront of social change, equipped with the skills to devise creative solutions, assess their feasibility, and write and present in ways that inspire others to join in support.  

Our diverse alumni boldly tackle the most challenging public problems our society faces—climate change, healthcare, education, immigration, technology, sustainable development, and more. They do so through their work in government, nonprofit organizations, social enterprise, law, and business. They hold political office, work as research analysts, consultants, teachers, entrepreneurs, government managers, and more.

The world needs leaders ready to take on these most challenging and meaningful roles.
