Student Perspective

Sacha Forstner, MPP Candidate Class of 2019, writes about the annual trip:

“Not only was the trip informative and an excellent reminder for me of why I’m in this program, it also provided me (and the other attendees) with terrific one-of-a-kind opportunities to interact with and learn from senior government officials, SPPG alumni, and prospective employers in all sectors.”
