The McCarthy Center believes in the importance of experiential learning as a way to engage students in the many layers of the policy-making process. Study tours bring students face-to-face with key players and organizations working on current policy issues like green urban planning, immigration, and rural development. If you have an idea for a future study tour (especially something local), please contact Sabrina Gilchrist at [email protected] with your idea.
