2015/16 Humphrey Policy Fellows Selected


The University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs has announced the names of individuals selected at 2015/16 Policy Fellows. The College congratulates member Jennifer Andrashko, MSW, LICSW on being named to the cohort. The Policy Fellows is one of the country’s most respected public affairs leadership programs for emerging and mid-career professionals. The nine-month program is unmatched in its diversity, interaction with public officials, leadership training, and opportunity to undertake important projects that benefit the wider community.

Since its inception in 1990, the Policy Fellows program has trained over 600 Minnesotans, many of whom are now influential figures in their communities and around the world. Begun by Vice President Walter Mondale and Ambassador Geri Joseph, the program was directed for a dozen years by former congressmen Tim Penny and Vin Weber. Today, nationally prominent political science professor Lawrence Jacobs directs the program, continuing the tradition of convening the best and brightest emerging leaders in Minnesota. Program activities are conducted by recognized leaders from business, government, and nonprofit organizations, as well as experts from the University of Minnesota and academic institutions around the country.
