Public Policy Initiative Town Hall Meeting to Commence

By Catherine Szilagyi, Student Intern of CHASS College Computing

The campus community is invited to attend a town hall meeting to be held at UC Riverside on Tuesday, April 26 th from 10am to 3pm at the UCR Extension Center, conference rooms D and E. The meeting is being held in hopes of introducing the Public Policy Initiative to the broader campus community, as well as to obtain feedback on the initiative’s proposed curricular, research and outreach plans.

Organizers of the event are also keen on testing the hypothesis that the Public Policy Initiative (PPI) could lead to the eventual establishment of a school of public policy at UC Riverside. In addition, the assembly will also be looking into the niche areas of focus for such a school. The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences has already launched the Public Policy Initiative at UCR; this initiative, still in the formative stages, aims to bring together faculty and students from different disciplines to work on issues of policy importance in Southern California and the Inland Empire region.

Coffee, tea, and lunch will be served at the event; attendees are asked to RSVP by April 21 st by sending an email to tstav001@student.ucr.edu
