|About||The Hoover Institution’s Summer Policy Boot Camp (HISPBC) is an intensive, one week residential program intended to instruct college students and recent graduates in the essentials of today’s national and international United States policy.|
In HISPBC, learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom through a rigorous academic schedule, morning and evening sessions, and networking opportunities with leaders in public policy.
The program is intended to instruct college students and recent graduates on the economic, political, and social aspects of United States public policy. The goal is to teach students how to think critically about public policy formulation and its results.
Using a highly interactive, tutorial-style model designed to foster fact-based critical thinking on the most important policy issues, students will have a unique chance to interact directly with the faculty of Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, comprised of world-renowned scholars in economics, government, political science, and related fields. Each half-day will be dedicated to one topic, chosen because of its immediate relevance to today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. Participants will collaborate through class discussions, study groups, and team projects that encourage diverse perspectives. Enrollment is limited, in order to facilitate maximum interaction with the faculty and other participants.
