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

UPDATE (3/11): As GU Politics transitions to a virtual operating model, all weekly discussions will be held on Zoom (not in person) until further notice. Check this page for a link to sign up for discussions for the upcoming week.

Sign up for discussion groups for the week of 4/6 here!

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!
