Announcing the 2011-2012 Humphrey Policy Fellows!

Congratulations to the talented and community-minded Minnesotans who have been selected as this year’s 2011-2012 Policy Fellows! See below for their names and affiliations and to get a sense of the diversity and capacity of this group.
As a 2006-2007 Fellow, I’m pleased to now be active with the Alumni group, which recently hosted a conversation with Governor Dayton where he announced that he would be taking action to end the Minnesota state shutdown. As we continue to support the Policy Fellow program’s growth and mission, we’ll also be looking to increase the number of program applicants and participants from the nonprofit sector. If you would count yourself among that crowd, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what is unique about the Policy Fellows program compared to other nonprofit sector training and leadership programs, what the value is of nonprofit voices in the Fellows cohort, and what might be additional promotional or marketing opportunities in the sector. Drop me a line in the comments below or at minnesota[at]gmail.com. Thanks for your insights and ideas!

2011-2012 Policy Fellows
Center for the Study of Politics and Governance
Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota
The Policy Fellows program offers practical training in public affairs leadership for emerging leaders seeking new experiences and skills. The nine-month leadership and professional development experience equips participants with core leadership competencies to inspire, organize, and work effectively with others to advance the public good.
The 2011-2012 Policy Fellows will be part of a diverse cohort of 35 people representing Minnesota’s public, private, and non-profit sectors. Fellows meet once a month as a group between September and early June, and travel to Washington, D.C., for a multi-day study trip with prominent elected officials and national leaders in public affairs. Fellows also engage in a group project of their own design, working with community partners to address a public policy issue. To read more about the program, please go here.
