ISPS-affiliated students are a carefully selected group of thoughtful individuals who are deeply passionate about policy issues. Students have different interests, policy-related experiences, and academic perspectives.
ISPS offers a series of short policy-related skills development sessions to affiliated students to ensure that all students have a base level of knowledge about key aspects of policy work.
Sessions will be held 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Policy Lab, 77 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT.
