Submitted by Cadence Ciesielski
The Kansas State University Staley School of Leadership Studies nonprofit leadership program and the Office of Pre-Law Advising are convening a faculty-led educational experience to learn about law, policy and nonprofit leadership in our nation's capital.
Among American cities, Washington, D.C., nears the top of the list of greatest concentration of nonprofit and legal organizations — particularly those with a federal, international, and policy focus. As the seat of the federal government, D.C. is home to major advocacy organizations and more than 12,000 distinct nonprofit organizations.
Students and faculty will tour a variety of nonprofit and policy-based organizations, government agencies and offices, law schools and law firms. We will meet with practitioners and alumni of the nonprofit and pre-law advising programs and participate in service learning. Travel dates are April 29 through May 3.
A limited number of students will be selected to travel on this experience. Preference will be given to pre-law and/or nonprofit leadership students; students with an interest in nonprofit policy, advocacy, or law. The program will cover some costs of the trip while in D.C., such as group transportation to events, group meals and group activities.
Students interested in participating in this trip should submit this application by midnight March 4.
