Description

Chair: Guillermo De Los Reyes, University of Houston

Abstract: As part of an IGERT grant entitled Nitrogren Systems: Policy-oriented Research and Education a major effort was made at Washington State University to supplement the science and engineering training being provided to a select group of doctoral students with appropriate (but not overly burdensome) policy process training. The major elements of this training include the following:
• A dynamic modeling course featuring nitrogen cycling phenomena and the interaction of policy choices with stakeholder reactions by those affected by statutory and regulatory measures taken by federal, state or local government.
• A policy studio course (single course taken in the second semester of the 2-year IGERT training sequence) in which policy process instruction, selected guest speakers, and week-long visit to Wash. DC for meetings with key actors related to each student’s dissertation topic.
A summer policy-oriented IGERT-funded internship with a major laboratory, public agency, legislative committee or advocacy group toward the end of coursework accomplishment.
Inclusion of a chapter devoted to the public policy dimension of the NSPIRE student’s dissertation.
