Policy Studies

Faculty members participating in the Policy Studies Ph.D. Program hold academic appointments in their respective departments, not policy studies.  Faculty self-select to become involved in the Policy Studies Program.  They are involved in various roles, depending upon their public policy teaching and research interests.  Often faculty participation in Policy Studies may not be continuous; it varies over time.  Typically, mutual research interests between faculty and individual students contribute to their involvement in the program.
