Practical courses and experiences
P3E provides students with meaningful, mutually beneficial interactions with real-world organizations, government entities and community partners outside the university to learn about and impact public policy.
Students engage in semester–long applied policy seminars, policy-based independent study projects, client–led research projects, summer fellowships, and a wide variety of engaged learning activities.
The P3E mentoring initiative pairs student teams with teams of distinguished professional policy mentors to provide guidance on the students’ client-based projects. Learn more about our mentors here.
