The Policy Research Capstone Seminar at the School of Public Policy is a project that develops and presents a major policy program design and implementation plan using a real situation in an actual global, state, or local agency. Students develop a clearly focused mission, strategy, and an implementation plan. This project requires personal planning, a budget plan, and a clear method for securing approvals from all interested parties whose ownership is critical for its success.
