Opportunities

The McClure Center values its role in expanding opportunities to get involved in public policy for students — from undergraduates to postdoctoral. The Center also values its role in connecting faculty to opportunities that relate their research to public policy. One way to do this is by linking students and faculty on sabbatical to internships, jobs and research opportunities.
