"It is a privilege everyday to teach about politics and public policy at Georgetown. It is the best campus for studying these topics that I have ever seen. So many incredibly smart undergraduate and graduate students, across many schools and departments, share an interest in making the world a better place by improving governance. It is not just that students bring an extraordinary number of skills and experiences to class discussions and that they encounter major researchers and national leaders as guest speakers all semester. On top of that, I constantly pass students in the hallway and walking around campus who are debating at the high level important public policy and governance controversies. To be a student at Georgetown is to be immersed in a culture of political ideas and debate unlike anywhere else in the world."
