Program Benefits

The Pardee RAND Graduate School's Faculty Leaders Program seeks to build diversity in public policy through strong engagement of faculty leaders across the United States. The program is open to current faculty at U.S. colleges and universities in any discipline who are passionate about leveraging their teaching and research to better their communities and to help usher in the next generation of policy leaders. Fellowships that cover tuition and travel costs will be awarded to up to twelve participants. During the week-long program, you will learn how to:

  • Use your position as a faculty member to bring positive change to your community.
  • Help influence public policy through your research.
  • Enhance your curriculum by linking concepts of public policy analysis to your own discipline.
  • Mentor students who have the passion and potential to become leaders in public policy.
  • Develop a new network of peers, including RAND researchers, in the faculty and policy community.

Pardee RAND is committed to increasing the prevalence of scholars/professionals from underrepresented minorities in all levels of the policymaking process. Faculty serving highly diverse student bodies are encouraged to apply today.
