On Tuesday, the School of Public Policy hosted a one-day Public Policy Camp with the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM) for regional undergraduate students interested in Public Policy. Dozens of students from UMBC and other universities in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and DC joined us to unpack the idea of Public Policy, and how they can explore a career and education in the field. Alumni, current graduate students, and local community leaders led small group exercises, like policy analysis simulations, and shared their perspectives on panels.
UMBC President Dr. Freeman Hrabowski and CAHSS Dean Dr. Scott Casper welcomed the group in the morning, and the day's activities and panels were moderated by Public Policy faculty: Dr. Jane Arnold Lincove, Dr. F. Chris Curran, and Director of Public Policy, Dr. Susan Sterett.
