The University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy

Public policy is inseparable from modern life. It affects anyone who pays taxes or drives a car, has children or grows old. In the University of Chicago tradition of rigorous quantitative training, Harris Public Policy will equip the next generation of public policy leaders with skills to address even the toughest policy challenges.

Harris alumni pursue careers as varied as their interests and backgrounds. They work in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. They work in metropolitan centers and remote rural villages. They work with massive, complex data sets and with people from all walks of life. Regardless of their professional paths, Harris graduates are bound by a passion for problem solving, a commitment to the public good, and the shared experience of having attended one of the most exciting and challenging public policy schools in the country.

The University of Chicago Campaign: Inquiry and Impact will raise $75 million to support initiatives throughout Harris Public Policy.
