Policy Students Visit D.C.
Doctoral students in the EAD 967: Policy Development and Analysis in Postsecondary Education course took a two-day trip to Washington, DC, supported by the Center for Higher and Adult Education (CHAE).
The Center for Higher and Adult Education annually sponsors travel to Washington, D.C. for students in the capstone core course in the Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education doctoral program (EAD 967: Policy Development and Analysis in Postsecondary Education). The HALE doctoral cohort of students spend 2 days in the nation’s capital visiting higher education associations and organizations to learn about policy issues currently being debated at the institutional, state, and federal levels in the United States as well as the role that policy analysis and education research play in the policy process.
[The trip] was honestly one of the best learning experiences I have ever had and am very grateful the Center supports us in this way.
The policy trip offers students an incredible opportunity for both academic and professional development that is unique among higher education doctoral programs around the country. Students are able to link theory and practice by hearing from current higher education policy leaders on a range of current policy issues.
[The trip] was very powerful, and helpful, to contextualize what we have been reading and talking about in class. These were people dealing with all aspects of policy, so it was great to hear all their perspectives and hear their stories about the process.
