Being the Change: Exploring a Career in Public Policy

Tuesday, March 12, 2019
9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Albin O. Kuhn Library and Gallery – UMBC, 7th Floor



The APPAM-UMBC Public Policy Camp was presented on Tuesday, March 12th, 2019, at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in Baltimore, Maryland.  It was designed for promising undergraduate (sophomore – senior) students of from underrepresented groups who want to make a difference in their communities.  

The idea behind the event was that having diverse perspectives at the policy table leads to better, more effective and inclusive, public policy.

Policy Camp participants:
• engaged with students from across the Mid-Atlantic region, UMBC Public Policy faculty and our alumni on public and social issues,
• learned about the skills necessary to design and implement good public policy,
• met leaders who live and work in the policy field,
• explored the career possibilities gained by having a public policy and administration skill set,
• and left excited about public policy as an academic, personal and professional pathway.


About Our Policy Camps

The Public Policy Camp is an APPAM initiative aimed at introducing the field of public policy to a group of students who might not otherwise be familiar with it, and increasing the pipeline of diverse students into APPAM institutional member graduate public policy and public affairs schools.  We know that only by having all voices at the table can we be successful in our efforts of improving critical public policies for all.
