The Project on Political Reform’s (PPR) Student Advisory Board supports the mission of the PPR by planning educational opportunities with relevant guest speakers, organizing mini-courses, and hosting networking events. The Project on Political Reform aims to investigate government dysfunction and identify pragmatic solutions in areas such as legislative decision-making, lobbying, political accountability, campaign laws and practices, structural incentives influencing candidate and office-holder behavior, and the relationships between governing institutions. SAB Members have the unique opportunity to plan events that interest them and their classmates as well as have special access to visiting speakers.
The PPR Student Advisory Board provides programmatic input and management. For the 2016–17 academic year, this included:
Hosting a campaign simulation conference on strategic issues and the role of digital technology in politics
Organizing bipartisan dinner conferences to facilitate conversations across political aisles
Launching the Community Action Bureau, which provides policy students with opportunities to advocate for legislation impacting community based organizations on the South Side of Chicago
Offering 5+ funded internships
