The Admissions team at Harris Public Policy works to attract and enroll a diverse class of students each year. In fact, we have nearly tripled the number of underrepresented minority students in the past five years.
Sparkle Dalphinis is committed to supporting underserved populations through the application process. Her education and professional experience are ideal for finding students who fit the diverse and policy-driven environment of Harris Public Policy.
The Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Board (DIAB) serves as the coordinating body for all affairs regarding diversity and inclusion at Harris Public Policy. The DIAB includes senior administration, faculty, students, alumni, and staff members.
The Common Read includes incoming students each year, as well as faculty and staff, who read the same book and discuss it together. This year, we read What the Eyes Don't See by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, a firsthand account of a pediatrician who advocated on behalf of her patients during the Flint Water Crisis.
The Common Read is part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion and our belief that future policymakers must be given the opportunity to better understand the lived experiences of people who have been marginalized and to explore related policy questions.
