Weekly discussion groups are one of the cornerstones of the Fellows Program. Over the course of eight weeks, each Fellow will lead a weekly 90-minute discussion with students on a current political topic. No required readings. No papers. Just lively discussions open to the entire university community.
Time/Day: Wednesdays from 7:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m. (Eastern) in the GU Politics Living Room.
Discussion Topic: People First- Covering Politics Through A Public Service Lens
