The University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy was founded on the belief that rigorous, quantitative research is the best guide for public policy. Honoring the University of Chicago traditions of intellectual rigor and interdisciplinary investigation, the school does not restrict itself to any particular policy domain but distinguishes itself by its unique point of view. From urban studies to early childhood development, from energy to global health and more, Harris brings an exacting, data-driven perspective to the full spectrum of policy concerns.
Continually adapting to address the world’s most complex social challenges, the school is a pre-eminent source of scholarship with immediate relevance to practitioners. Our students come to us with the ambition to make a difference, and on day one they begin to develop and apply a set of skills that will enable them to become fearless policy leaders with the ability to make measurable social impact. Chicago Harris alumni are thriving in a wide range of fields, but they are united by their commitment to figuring out what is best for society and getting it done.
