Who We Are
Over a decade ago, Roosevelt@UGA was created to inspire community activism and offer innovative solutions to complex problems. Today, we hold these same goals. As a non-partisan, student-run policy think tank, we aim to discuss, write, and implement policy. We empower students to become active and informed citizens.
Each week, we come together to learn about public policy and existing issues. We bring in local officials and experts to discuss policy topics. Our own members present their research and discuss new ideas, too.
Using a hands-on approach, Roosevelt's Policy Projects are an opportunity for students to directly explore public policy in Athens. Policy Project members research issues (e.g. education, sustainability, homelessness) in Athens, develop a policy solution, and advocate for it. They meet with stakeholders from the community, private sector, and government.
The Arch Policy Journal and our blog offer students a medium to improve their writing skills and communicate their policy ideas.
Whether you pursue a career in government, law, healthcare, consulting, tech, or something completely different, policy offers a framework for how to think and solve problems.
