Policy, Politics and Social Change

Policy, Politics and Social Change participants will explore topics of policy and political interest and how societal concerns get translated into policy and practice through formal and informal discussions, speakers representing diverse multi-disciplinary perspectives from within Penn and the broader community and ‘hands-on’ volunteer experiences. The challenges of policy development and implementation, particularly within the context of cyclical U.S. political elections, will be a major focus.
