Harris Policy Labs is a unique initiative in which teams of second-year (or second-third quarter MA) Harris students apply their rigorous core education to real-time public policy challenges facing client organizations. Students who complete the program have the chance to make an impact in their policy area of interest before they graduate, and are better-prepared policy professionals with a competitive advantage in the job market.
