Meet the Public Policy Communications Team

The Public Policy Program is glad to introduce our student communications team this year. Welcome aboard Sigrid, Olivia, and Joseph! The team will be helping us expand our newsfeed and social media presence so we can get the word out about the great things happening with our students, faculty, and alums. At the same time, the team is going to gain valuable knowledge and experience about how to effectively communicate policy ideas to broad audiences. In all, Public Policy gets some help to spread our good news and the students get to develop their skills while exploring their interests with us. We'd definitely call that a big win.
