Policy Boot Camp: Congress


Back to top

New for the 2019–20 academic year, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions is offering Policy Boot Camps to share our team's experience directly engaging with decision makers. For the fall semester, Duke University students will have the opportunity to learn more about environmental policy making institutions—what they are, how they work, and how to engage them.

In this session, Tim Profeta, director of the Nicholas Institute, will take a closer look at Congress:

  • What is a congressional office vs. a congressional committee?
  • Do staffers really matter?
  • The congressional calendar and when to engage.

A reception with free pizza and drinks will immediately follow the session.
