APPAM is the Natural Place to Encourage New Scholars in our Field | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

I can still remember my first APPAM presentation in 1993 like it was yesterday. It was at 8 am on a Friday and all six of the panel members were from the West Coast, so we were bleary-eyed and tired. On my panel was a former university system provost, two leading scholars on higher ed governance, the President and CEO of the leading national nonprofit, a senior economist from a renowned think tank, and me—a graduate student at the RAND Graduate School. What an amazing opportunity!


APPAM Student Brown Bag Series: Discussion & Networking with Lee Badgett

Are you an emerging policy professional eager to influence policy with your research?  Please join APPAM and AcademyHealth as we take a deep dive into what policy students and practitioners can do to become an influential policy advisor and go-to person on emerging issues. 

Dr. M.V. Lee Badgett, author of The Public Professor: How to Use your Research to Change the World, will offer scholars ways to use their ideas, research, and knowledge to change the policy world. Dr. Badgett will offer clear and practical advice to help scholars develop relationships with the people who can get your research into Congressional hearings, on NPR, and into the pages of national newspapers.
