Diversity and inclusion is essential to policy leadership. Fostering an environment that encourages rigorous inquiry and effective public policy problem-solving requires the involvement and understanding of diverse viewpoints, experiences, and traditions. The Harris School of Public Policy has made this commitment a priority as we prepare a new generation of policy leaders to make a positive social impact in their communities and around the world.

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 are reading Streets of Gold: America's Untold Story of Immigrant Success by Ran Abramitzky and Leah Boustan, which combines striking storytelling with innovative data analysis to reimagine the histories—and futures—of immigration in the United States.
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.
