Policy & Research Legislative Fellows Program Info Session

This session will provide more information regarding the Policy and Research Legislative Fellows Program run by the Center for Social and Behavioral Science. This non-partisan initiative, supported by the Office of the Chancellor-Public Engagement, matches graduate students at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) with a state legislator representing Champaign-Urbana or a neighboring district to collaborate on a policy research project that can directly inform public policy to help make Illinois a better place to live. Potential research project topics include the environment; health and housing; business and trade; criminal justice reform; government, taxes and infrastructure; and education.
