Policy and Legislative Research Fellows Info Session
From Hannah Wirth
The Center for Social & Behavioral Science (CSBS) launched the Policy & Research Legislative Fellows program in Summer 2022. This non-partisan initiative, supported by the Office of the Chancellor-Public Engagement, matches graduate students at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with state legislators representing Champaign-Urbana or a neighboring district to collaborate on a policy research project that can inform public policy to help make Illinois a better place to live.
Potential areas for research project topics include, but are not limited to: the environment; health and housing; business and trade; criminal justice reform; government, taxes and infrastructure; and education.
