We are not a buttoned-up policy school.
We are located within a bustling urban university that encourages students to raise their voices, call out injustice, and work toward making the world a better place.
Our campus would feel incomplete if our students were not allowed to express themselves authentically. This foundation sets the stage for our work.
This concept of togetherness perfectly reflects our values: the work we do is intended to make the world a better place for EVERYONE. Because together, we can accomplish more.
