New Public Policy Major at UIS
A strong commitment to preparing professionals for public service has identified UIS from its earliest days, and excellent academic programs strengthen that commitment. Public Policy, one such program, explores the full policy-making process. This includes applying and evaluating policies—especially important here in the state capital of Illinois. Public Policy is part of the UIS Political Science Department.
Students complete internships in many settings, including the American Red Cross, Illinois Innocence Project, Cook-Witter, Inc., Senator Durbin's Springfield Office and more. Three award-winning student organizations enhance students' experience: Model United Nations, Model Illinois Government, and the Illinois Moot Court/Mock Trial Club.
This year, the first four graduates in the Bachelors of Public Policy will complete their programs. Pictured from left: Tristan Akers, James Wheeler, Andrew Jarmer, and Jason Edwards. Congratulations!
Academic Excellence is a Reaching Stellar Campaign priority…
Because learning empowers the future (for all of us).
