PPIA Public Service Weekend 2021: A Virtual Conference |

The Evans School is excited to partner with Public Policy & International Affairs Program (PPIA) to host a virtual Public Service Weekend (PSW) for undergraduate students in August 2021.  We will draw upon lessons from recent Seattle events to understand the impact of policy in people’s lives and the many ways in which community-led advocacy and activism advances policy change at the local, state, and regional levels. Selected participants will attend at no cost.

  • Thursday, August 19, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm PST
  • Friday, August 20, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm PST
  • Thursday, August 26, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm PST
  • Friday, August 27, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm PST
