Please join the Harris Mentor Program as we welcome Oeindrila Dube of the Harris School of Public Policy to share her research on Queens and War in Europe. Afterwards, stay for our networking reception to connect with members of our expansive mentor network. Composed of talented policy practitioners, this network provides a great opportunity for mentors to connect with one another for collaboration, partnership, and development.

Feel free to bring along your colleagues who are interested in learning more about the Harris Mentor Program. 

Professor Dube is the Philip K. Pearson Professor of Global Conflict Studies, and a faculty member in the Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts. Dube is a faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and affiliated with the Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development and University of Chicago Crime Lab.

The Mentor Program, which has been part of the Harris student experience for more than 25 years, facilitates relationships between students and policy practitioners, many of whom are Harris alumni.  The program broadens students’ real-world learning experiences and professionally relevant knowledge base, and helps them build powerful professional networks. The Mentor Program uses a multi-level structure that fosters meaningful connections between students and mentors. Throughout the two-year program, students benefit from programming focusing on topical area(s) of interest in their first year, followed by a one-on-one relationship with a mentor in their second year.  Harris mentors call on their experience to help students connect academic training with practical opportunities and to navigate the transition to professional careers.  Mentors include a wide range of policy practitioners and other professionals who freely give their time and insight to the important task of nurturing our next generation of policy leaders.
