The School engages in strategic partnerships with a number of stakeholders across the realm of public policy – from local governments and NGOs, to multinational agencies and think tanks. These partnerships inform faculty research, provide students with internship and career opportunities, and help position our School as a leader in public policy education.
Through partnerships, we seek collaborative engagement opportunities to strengthen our role and position within the University of Maryland and the broader policy community. We partner with interested stakeholders on research, leadership development through our executive graduate programs, career and internship placement for students and graduates, and philanthropic partnerships.
The School ranks among the top 25 graduate schools in the nation, and the top 10 percent of schools nationwide. Our position - both in terms of ranking – and geography enables strategic partnerships that draw on our expertise as a premier public research university.
