The Roosevelt Institute Campus Network, the nation’s largest student-run public policy think-tank will be re-launching the Georgia Tech chapter this fall. Endowed by the Franklin & EleanorRoosevelt Foundation, the campus network has grown to include 8,000+ students in more than 80chapters in the United States and Great Britain.
This past year, the Campus network launched several projects, including Think 2040 http://think2040.org/, The Blueprint for Millennial America http://www.rooseveltcampusnetwork.org/chapter/1875/blueprint-millennial-america, and was invited by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation to participatein Fiscal Summit 2011, co-hosted by President Clinton, http://www.pgpf.org/fiscalsummit.aspx. These projects were covered by several prominent press groups including: The Atlantic, WSJ, CBS NightlyNews, Fox Business News, and media aggregation sites like The Huffington Post.
Many more projects are planned for the upcoming year and I invite all academically capable andinterested students to participate. Help re-launch the Georgia Tech chapter and contribute to thegrowing Millennial voice in our national dialogue. Open to all disciplines, especially welcomed, areindividuals with interdisciplinary backgrounds.
