Engaging Students

As part of the Pepperdine School of Public Policy, the Davenport Institute remains committed to working with the school's graduate students to provide them with access to the best practices in local governance and online engagement. The relationship between citizens and government is changing fundamentally, and we seek to equip State and Local government students with the skills and tools that will make them effective leaders in the 21st Century.
