“I wanted to address housing issues in my community, but I did not feel I could tackle this challenging project effectively and with confidence. I sought out the Carsey School of Public Policy for its applied learning graduate degrees and the ability to bring my own preconceived project to the program in the form of a capstone. My classes have laid a strong foundation for achieving my capstone project goals and I owe that knowledge and confidence to the high-quality instructors and programming provided through the Carsey School.”

~James Vayo, '19G MCD, NeighborWorks Community Economic Development Certified Professional
