Program in Practical Policy Engagement
Advancing public policy through engaged learning, policy research, and policy impact.
Working as a Research Fellow has been a really invaluable experience. It’s been great to connect not only with other Public Policy students across various programs, but also to connect with those at the Dearborn Department of Public Health. We all have different policy interests and areas of expertise, but have concurrently come together to serve the Dearborn community. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to engage with such a groundbreaking department and accomplished Fellows!”

“The partnership with the Ford School is invaluable to our efforts to ensure public schools in Michigan are supporting students suffering from tobacco and vaping addiction. The students (Brenna and Arron) bring a fresh perspective to our work and have been essential to our strategy as it relates to engaging schools and providing policy recommendations. I look forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come.”Read more about community partners
