Policy-Related Skills Development

FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2022-23: ALL TRAINING WILL BE DELIEVERED THROUGH THE FELLOWS PROGRAMS.

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.

Students are encouraged to register for workshops offered by the Stat Lab at the Marx Science and Social Science Library and resources available at the Undergraduate Writing Lab at the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning.

Need help finding and/or manipulating data, framing your research question, locating the best sources? Guidance on search strategies for annotated bibliographies and using citation software? Please contact Barbara Esty, Data Librarian, with any questions.
