Schar School of Policy and Government

The mission of the Schar School of Policy and Government is to advance the public good.

We provide our students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to become leaders and managers in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.  These graduates apply the knowledge and skills gained in our classrooms at some of the most prestigious companies, consulting firms, nonprofits, multinational organizations, and government agencies in Washington, DC, and beyond.

Decision-makers and the public use our faculty’s research to both understand and develop policy in a variety of areas.  In addition, we are committed to public service in our professions and in regional, national, and global communities.
