Washington Connections

Go inside the world of politics and policy.

Washington Connections

Washington Connections is a semester-long experience that provides participants with a deeper understanding of the American political system, equips them with skills to engage as members of a civic community, and prepares them for lives and careers as agents of change. 

The program will take place in three parts:

  • Weekly sessions will focus on identifying shared challenges facing our nation. Workshops will enable participants to confront these challenges and to participate in difficult conversations.
  • A politics & policy project will give students an opportunity to analyze policy developments in light of the new presidential administration for Ike’s Anvil, the Eisenhower Institute blog. 
  • Alumni mentorship opportunities will help participants learn more about careers and think through how their academic work can be translated to professional environments in politics, advocacy, lobbying, diplomacy, and other public service fields.

Washington Connections will be offered twice during the 2020-21 academic year, as a semester-long program in both fall and spring semesters.
