MPA Student Team Traveling to D.C.

Thursday, January 31, 2019

We are excited to announce that our MPA program is sending four students to Washington, D.C. to participate in The NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition on February 23 at Georgetown University.  The issue is Global Migration Challenges.  This is a day-long event that allows graduate students in public policy and related fields to test their skills on real-world data. This year, using a turn-based, participatory simulation developed for the competition by the Center for Leadership Simulation and Gaming, student teams will take on cabinet-level positions of a virtual country. Participants enter policy decisions in the simulation software to see how their policies affect their citizens, their economy, and the migrants themselves.
