The Center for Public Research and Leadership (CPRL) at Columbia University invites you to apply to participate in a 13-credit, full-semester course “Public Education Policy and Consulting Clinic”. This course brings together students from Harvard Law School and students in residence from law, business, education, and policy schools at Columbia, Harvard, Michigan, NYU, Penn, Vanderbilt, Yale, and other universities.

Through seminars and consulting projects, CPRL students immerse themselves in theory and hands-on practice needed to spur transformational change in public education. The consulting projects with education and other public sector organizations give students the chance to work on interdisciplinary teams under the guidance of full-time professionals with experience in P-12 management, consulting, and education research.

CPRL welcomes applications for the spring Spring 2018 semester. CPRL offers a limited number of scholarships granting up to $20,000 toward students’ home tuition, available for enrolled students who commit to starting their careers following graduation in legal or management positions in public or nonprofit organizations in the education sector. CPRL offers substantial job-placement support.

For course details and application information, see the attached FAQs and Course Announcement.
