Experiential Programs

At GU Politics, students are teaching as much as they are learning. The public servants who walk through our doors walk away with more than they came in with because of the conversations they’re having with the next generation of leaders. Our experiential programming is a huge part of fostering that process and getting young people excited about lives in public service.

Career Programming

Our career workshops, trainings, and site visits allow students to hear directly from professionals working in journalism, politics, and public service. For now, all of our career programming is done virtually, and we will resume in-person sessions once it is safe to do so.
