University of Virginia
The University of Virginia is distinctive among institutions of higher education. Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, and located on a World Heritage site in Charlottesville, the University sustains the ideal of developing, through education, leaders who are well-prepared to help shape the future of the nation. The University is public, while nourished by the strong support of its alumni. It is also selective; the students who come here have been chosen because they show the exceptional promise Jefferson envisioned.

Excellent Course

A Very informative course that makes ones mind open that rapid technological changes are not enough to put peer presure on the policy making governing departments, rather an input at each level (citizens & Public) and thinking at broader aspect can bring the constant change to a new level and thus will benefit the national interest.

A very insightful course about the Public Policy challenges faced in the contemporary times.

Great course! I liked it a lot this course because I had the opportunity to listen to leaders of different government branches to express their opinion on issues that are of common interest.

Without a doubt, it is a course that I would like to expand to be able to know the point of view of distinguished visitors, professors and students on the subject of public policies in the XXI Century.
