Careers in Public Policy
JEFFREY M. JONES
Assistant Director and Research Fellow
MPP, Pepperdine University, 2002
Double Specialization: American Politics and Economics
BA, Political Science, Wheaton College, 1993
My experience at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy moved me from a place of interest in the arena of politics to a point of impact through my work as a research fellow at the Hoover Institution. I encountered professors who encouraged a high level of scholarship and continually challenged me to think and write clearly.
Courses in economics and political philosophy taught me to formulate solutions that take into account both the rational and normative nature of policy. Over all this, the call to possess a leadership mindset prompts me to look for ways to improve myself, those I work with, and the institution I serve.
