Training the leaders... of tomorrow.


MPP Students are taught by and work closely with policy researchers in the Institute for Policy Studies.  IPS, the university's primary policy research and teaching arm in the social sciences, boasts a distinguished staff of policy professionals covering economic development, housing and urban policy, human resource development policy, and all other major social issues.  It stands at the cutting edge of policy research, including the non-profit sector in the U.S. and abroad.  The large number of ongoing research projects leads to rich opportunities for students, including research assistantships, internships and study.
