Message from the Associate Dean

Welcome to the UCR School of Public Policy Student Affairs site! Whether you’re a current public policy major, minor, or Master of Public Policy student, this will be your hub for information and resources to help you succeed in your individual academic journeys. 

As SPP students, you have the distinction of being at one of only four public policy schools in the entire UC system. Our MPP program is also the only such graduate program at a major research university in the Inland Southern California region. And our undergraduate public policy program is the only one offered across all UCs.

Whether through advising, internship matching, career counseling, or the other opportunities we present, we at the UCR School of Public Policy are proud to usher you towards a future in which you will be making an impact and difference in your region and in the world as tomorrow’s policy leaders.

Kurt Schwabe, Ph.D.
Associate Dean
