For thirty-seven years, the Public Affairs Institute has brought together world-class faculty and senior-level public affairs professionals to discuss emerging political, economic, social and technological issues in a rigorous, innovative curriculum.

Class sessions are led by faculty members, distinguished in their fields of expertise, in a mix of large group lectures and small group discussions, allowing for an interactive, personal learning environment. To enrich the classroom experience, participants are expected to complete the faculty-assigned readings, which allow for more in-depth discussion.

Beyond the classroom, the Institute creates unparalleled networking opportunities, as each class group meets with faculty members, takes meals and enjoys free-time activities together. Participants commit to attending one week-long session every year for three consecutive years.

Completion of the Public Affairs Institute strengthens a participant’s abilities as a strategic analyst, a counselor to senior management, and as a liaison with governmental policy makers, business and community leaders.

Please join us for the 2018 Public Affairs Institute,
the professional learning experience of a lifetime.
