It's like your favorite class. Without the homework.


Weekly discussion groups are one of the cornerstones of the Fellows Program. Over the course of eight weeks, each Fellow will lead a weekly 90-minute discussion with students on a current political topic. No required readings. No papers. Just lively discussions open to the entire university community. The Fellows bring their unique perspective. All we ask is that you bring yours!
