The Louis L. Goldstein Program in Public Affairs was established in 1990 to encourage students to enter public service by introducing them to exemplary leaders, both in and out of government.
The Goldstein Program has hosted journalists, political activists, foreign policy analysts, diplomats, military commanders and government officials of both national and international stature.
The Goldstein Program sponsors lectures, symposia, and visiting fellows, student participation in models and conferences, and other projects that bring students and faculty together with leaders experienced in developing public policy.
Dr. Christine Wade, Associate Professor of Political Science and International Studies, is the Curator of the Goldstein Program. Past Curators include Dr. Tahir Shad (2003-2010) and Dr. Daniel Premo (1990-2003).
