College Students Examine Policy issues at Junior Summer Institute

August 14th, 2018


This summer, 31 undergraduate students from colleges and universities across the United States explored issues in public policy at the Junior Summer Institute (JSI), hosted by Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

Aiming to prepare undergraduate students for graduate study and careers in public policy and international affairs, JSI comprises a rigorous curriculum focused on writing, critical thinking, public speaking and quantitative reasoning skills. It requires coursework in economics and statistics, as well as policy workshops in international and domestic policy issues.

“The JSI is rigorous. It aims to prepare students from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented communities for graduate school, and ultimately, for influential roles serving the public good,” said Cecilia Rouse, dean of the Woodrow Wilson School and the Lawrence and Shirley Katzman and Lewis and Anna Ernst Professor in the Economics of Education.
