Design Your Path at Harris 


Policy is not about feeling good. Policy is about doing good.

Addressing todays interconnected, global challenges takes rigorous inquiry. It takes innovative people who can face the facts, gather data, and understand why current policies exist in order to make them better.

That’s why we’re here, and we hope you’ll join us.

Our application for the class starting in 2023 is open.

Harris Student Organizations (HSOs) are an opportunity to make connections, put policy into practice, and develop and refine your leadership, teamwork, and project management skills.

To kick off the new year, Admissions is hosting a series of HSO Community Chats throughout January. Join this casual conversation to engage with current HSO members and ask questions about their organization’s work.

Each session will be co-hosted by two HSOs. Register for sessions by clicking the associated date and logging in with your application credentials. You must have started an application to join these sessions.
