LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FELLOWS

The GU Politics Fellows Program brings the biggest names in politics back to campus. We believe in the power of connecting students with practitioners to have a conversation that flows two ways— where students learn from leaders in the arena, and leaders learn from students about how to do politics better. This group of Fellows can’t wait to get to campus, host their weekly discussion groups, and meet with YOU during their office hours.

It’s our first post-virtual semester, and we’ve found a class of Fellows that matches the energy students are bringing back to the Hilltop. Get ready for dynamic discussions about the successful and failing strategies reformers are using “fix” a broken DC, the looming threat of China and U.S. competitiveness in the 21st century, how to design a national security apparatus for the modern era and actually get it passed through Congress, the power and backlash generated by increased representation in the newsroom, how to curb rampant disinformation online and address biases in our media, the impact of electoral winners and losers on social and political policies, and so much more. You’ll be challenged, informed, and inspired through this rare peek behind the curtain at the way Washington works. Learn more about the Fellows program.
