Students in the Public Policy Initiative track of ASP examine national issues through briefings and interviews with policy experts in think tanks, U.S. House and Senate offices, foreign embassies, advocacy groups, federal agencies, and international organizations. Fall 2013’s group topic was Energy, and students spent class days out in the city as they gained on-the-ground information about energy legislation.
PPI students attended an orientation to the legislative process from Capitol Hill staffers.
