McCourt School of Public Policy Impact Report Fall 2020


Dear Alumni and Friends,

Over the past year and a half, the McCourt School has grown in line with our ever-increasing aspirations for impact. We substantially expanded our academic and research faculty to reflect diverse expertise and groundbreaking scholarship, and this fall we welcomed more than 200 new students. The world is taking notice. Recently, the McCourt School was ranked #3 for International Global Policy and Administration and #11 for Public Policy Analysis by U.S. News & World Report.

This year and beyond, we continue to invest in the next generation of problem solvers. We will break down the barriers that stand between the impatient changemakers that fill our classrooms and the careers that await them—across sectors and policy areas, here in DC and around the globe. We will build a new home at the very center of policy making on the Capitol Campus, bringing together our students, research, professional staff, resources and programming and amplifying our collective ambition for the common good.

Each commitment the members of this generous community make to our mission deepens our capacity for transformational impact. In uncertain times like these, your support is deeply felt.
