Why Harris School of Public Policy?

Chicago Harris sets the standard for effective public policy leadership. We evaluate policy options based on evidence first, then consider implementation in the real world. No other school shares our commitment to shaping policy in this way.

We take great pride in our approach.

Our students develop the intellectual tools to tackle the most challenging social, educational, and economic issues facing our world. Harris faculty routinely break ground—and preconceptions—with their research on a wide array of topics including energy, health care, crime, inequality, and early childhood development.

Effective policy leaders combine insight, analysis, creativity, and communication. Prepare yourself to lead. 

You will join a network of more than 2,700 Chicago Harris graduates and more than 175,000 UChicago alumni in nearly 150 countries.
More than 85 Nobel laureates have been associated with the University of Chicago, including seven current faculty members.
