Summer Interterm: Getting Results inside the Beltway - WAshington, D.C.
Need a few extra credits this summer? Or just want to have an amazing experience in Washington D.C.? Program Director, Richard Caldwell, will be leading a one-week trip in Washington D.C. learning about how policy really happens in the nation's capitol.
Natasha Hilton - IPPS Student and DU Alum
"The Washington, D.C. trip not only proved to be a highlight of my undergraduate education, but proved one of my most invaluable experiences to date - it is not often that one has access to the some of the best and brightest DC has to offer. I am forever grateful to IPPS for the opportunity to actively engage with policy-makers on and off the Hill who, prior to my trip, had been reduced to a name in the footnotes of a scholarly article or a blurb in Politico. The benefits of the course extended beyond gaining new context and added perspective, because the trip allowed me to realize the beginnings of a professional career in DC upon graduation. For any student seeking new insight into public policy and simply how things "work" inside the Capitol, this course is a must."
