Associate Professor Katharine Owens from the department of Politics, Economics, and International Studies, A&S, has been named one of 15 inaugural ENACT Fellows.
ENACT, or the Educational Network for Active Civic Transformation, is a program intent on engaging college students in state-level legislation. The Fellowship includes a weeklong conference at Brandeis University, through which faculty develop classes to engage students in state politics. The students will learn tools to collaborate with advocacy groups, legislators, and legislative staff to advance policy.
ENACT is a national expansion of the Advocacy for Policy Change program, which aids students in challenging existing laws and proposing alternate policies.
