Information Session Format
The standard sessions begin with a short general presentation about the department and the university, after which prospective students are able to direct specific questions to faculty, staff, and students. The department will provide a light supper and lively conversation.

Our extended session will begin with a Q&A with current students and faculty members. Afterwards, prospective students can sit in on a course session: Cities in Space, Place, and Time (M.A. students) or Reflections on Public Policy Practice (M.P.P. students). A light dinner will follow, where prospective students will again have a chance to interact with faculty and current students.
