IPCE Inducts 25 Undergrads into UPPF Program

IPCE in partnership with the African American Academic Network (AAAN) and the Latin American Recruitment and Educational Services (LARES) are pleased to welcome the 2013-2014 Urban Public Policy Fellows to the Urban Public Policy Fellowship program (UPPF).

From August to April, the cohort of 25 will work at internship sites fielded in civic and policy organizations, nonprofit groups, and government offices that suit their individual interests; the cohort will also participate in weekly seminars and workshops that will expose them to the theory and practice of public policy-making, advocacy, community development and service provision. By the end of spring semester, the Fellows will give public presentations on public policy research conducted throughout the academic year.

The UPPF program is a leadership development program designed to expose historically underrepresented minority undergraduate students at UIC to key public policy issues.
